Paul Huang


— Violin

Huang has a superb command of his instrument: warm and bright in Dvorak’s sonatina in G, lilting and mellow in Brahms’s third sonata, which concluded the program. He upends the cliche about young virtuosos who excel most at fire and flash: He certainly has both in abundance, but his signature, on this recital, was an ability to play at the edge of audibility, carrying the sound down almost to nothing.
Anne Midgette, Washington Post

Paul Huang, a hypersensitive soloist... provided the evening’s balm: Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto... This listener does not recall any performance of the Barber, live or recorded, with greater flexibility and inwardness. The first two movements proved tender in the extreme. The presto finale was tossed off lightly, without mood-shattering angularity or trenchancy.
Alan Artner, Chicago Tribune

Mr. Huang is a rising artist... he played with a coppery, wiry bite, and ample vinegar laced his honeyed tone. This gave his sound focus and cut away at the sentimentality, even in the most poignant lyrical passages.
Zachary Woolfe, New York Times
