"Whoever says Hilda Huang


italian concerto bwv 971​ french overture bwv 831


 must also say Bach." ​

The young American pianist Hilda Huang began her international career after winning the first prize at the Leipzig International Bach Competition at age 18, having already earned the top prizes at the Würzburg and Tureck International Bach Competitions. Hilda Huang’s playing plumbs “philosophical depths” (West-Allgemeine Zeitung) and glimmers with “alluring extroversion” (New York Concert Review); her interpretations flow from a “mind that can multi-task… and ears that can “multi-listen’” (SF Examiner). Her work has been featured on the documentary film, Bach and Friends (2010) and on Discovery Channel’s Curiosity.com. In her debut recording, Hilda Huang performs the Bach Concerto in F minor with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra for TELARC international (2008, From the Top at the Pops).

In the 2019-2020 season, she presents Bach’s Clavier-Ubüng 2, comprising the Italian Concerto BWV 971 and the French Overture BWV 831 and will soon record these pieces for Orpheus Classical. ​​In the coming seasons, she also presents the Diabelli Variations in celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. She plays these variations “’puristically’, … transforming the jagged work of the changing variations to a grand whole” (West-Allgemeine Zeitung). She was the sole American invited to participate in the  2019 Wilhelm Kempff Beethoven masterclasses.
