Saturday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. — RUTLAND — The Paramount Theatre presents Paul Huang, violinist, the second in the three-part 2014/2015 “Passages at the Paramount” Series, on Saturday Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The Passages Series is in its seventh season of presenting, in association with Young Concert Artists, (NYC) some of the great emerging soloists in the world.
Hailed by the Washington Post as “an artist with the goods for a significant career” and praised by The Strad for his “stylish and polished playing,” Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang makes his Lincoln Center recital debut on the Great Performers series this season, and performs concertos, recitals, chamber music, and educational outreach around the country. As a concerto soloist, he performs the Saint-Saëns Violin Concerto No. 3 at the Brevard Music Festival, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons at Crested Butte Music Festival, the Vaughan Williams Violin Concerto in D minor with the Fairfax Symphony, and the Walton Concerto with the Symphony at WKU. He performs recitals at University of Georgia, the Lied Center of Kansas, the Ocean Grove Summer Stars Series, and the Paramount Theatre. He has also been re-engaged to perform with Camerata Pacifica, and gives duo recitals with pianist Louis Schwizgebel at Rockefeller University, Tannery Pond Concerts, the Macomb Center of the Performing Arts, and the Morgan Library and Museum. Mr. Huang has been selected as a member of Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program for 2015–2018.
His first solo CD, a collection of favorite virtuoso and romantic encore pieces, is slated for a Spring 2015 release on the CHIMEI label. He also recorded Songs America Loves to Sing and Four Songs of Solitude with Camerata Pacifica for their upcoming album of John Harbison works. The album is to be released on Harmonia Mundi this fall.
