About this Artist
First Prize winner of the 2003 Naumburg Foundation Violin Competition and the 2000 Hannover International Violin Competition, FRANK HUANG is well on his way to a major career as a violin virtuoso. At the age of eleven, he performed with the Houston Symphony in a nationally broadcast concert and has since performed with orchestras throughout the world, including the Cleveland Orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony, the NDR Radio Philharmonic of Hannover, the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, and the Genoa Orchestra. He has performed on NPR's Performance Today, Good Morning America, and CNN's American Morning with Paula Zahn.
Huang's first commercial recording, of fantasies by Schubert, Ernst, Schoenberg, and Waxman, was released on Naxos to great critical acclaim. He has had success in competitions since the age of 15, with top prize awards in the Premio Paganini International Violin Competition and the Indianapolis International Violin Competition. He received gold medal awards in the Kingsville International Competition, the Irving M. Klein International Competition, and the D'Angelo International Competition.
In addition to his solo career, Huang is deeply committed to chamber music. He has attended the Marlboro Music Festival, Ravinia's Steans Institute, and the Caramoor Festival, and has collaborated with the Metamorphosen Chamber Orchestra and the Sejong Soloists in New York. He was recently selected by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to perform as part of the highly prestigious CMS II program.
Huang studied with Robert Mann at the Juilliard School, Donald Weilerstein at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and with Fredell Lack. His New York City recital debut, presented by the Walter W. Naumburg Foundation, took place at Alice Tully Hall on January 15, 2004.
