(NEW LEBANON, N.Y.) – Violinist Paul Huang and pianist Louis Schwizgebel will play works by Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Kreisler and Corigliano in the final concert of the season at Tannery Pond Concerts in the Tannery on the grounds of the Darrow School on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at 6pm.
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,” 22-year-old Taiwanese-American violinist Paul Huang is recognized for his eloquent music making, effortless virtuosity, and compelling stage presence. Among other honors, he won First Prize at the 2011 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. In 2012, Huang was the first recipient of the Tannery Pond Concerts Performance Award an honor going to select YCA winners, as chosen by Tannery Pond artistic director Christian Steiner.
Swiss-Chinese 27-year-old pianist Louis Schwizgebel has been described as “a pianist with a profound gift” by the Guardian and an “insightful musician” by the New York Times. At 19 he won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions and last year was named a BBC New Generation Artist for 2013 to 2015.
