Sonata Op. 78, "A Therese"

Hilda Huang celebrates Beethoven@250 with performances of selected sonatas, variations and concertos in Germany and the United States. She will contribute the Op. 31 No. 1 sonata as part of Carnegie Hall's Piano Sonata Cycle and the Hammerklavier Sonata Op. 106 in San Francisco's Piano Sonata Cycle. Following her participation as the sole American in the 2019 Wilhelm Kempff Beethoven Masterclasses in Italy, she will appear in public masterclasses with Kristian Bezuidenhout at Carnegie Hall. She has and will continue to perform the Diabelli Variations “’puristically’, … transforming the jagged work of the changing variations to a grand whole” (West-Allgemeine Zeitung). 

HILDA HUANG

 must also say Bach." ​

2019-2020

"Whoever says Hilda Huang must also say Bach." (Leipzig Bach-Archiv) The young American pianist  began her international career after winning the first prize at the Leipzig International Bach Competition at age 18, earning the distinction of winning top prizes at three of the world's most significant international Bach competitions (Würzburg, Tureck). She gave her recital debut at the Leipzig Gewandhaus as part of the Steinway Prizewinners' Concert Network and subsequently appeared at the Leipzig and Montreal Bach Festivals and the BASF Young Pianists' series. 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 on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts series in Chicago, the Rockefeller Tri-I Noon Recitals series in New York, St Martin-in-the-Fields in London, and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
