Bin Huang endeared herself to the musical world when at age fourteen she won the Junior Wieniawski International Violin Competition in Lublin, Poland, sharing First Prize with Maxim Vengerov. She has maintained international prominence, winning both the Paganini International Violin Competition in Genoa, Italy in 1994, and the Munich (ARD) International Music Competition in 1999. Ms. Huang has been universally lauded for her interpretive and technical skills, hailed as “a winner in what matters the most…” (The Washington Post) and “a talent that leaves a listener flabbergasted…” (The Sun, Baltimore)

Bin Huang’s live recording of the Beethoven Violin Concerto on Paganini’s own violin, the “Cannon,” is the only existing live recording captured with that legendary instrument. Both the Audio Review in Italy and the Diapason in France have highly praised this CD: “The Chinese violinist astounded the listener with both her technical abilities and her musical maturity: perfect intonation, formal clarity, exquisite phrasing…she brings alive the noble character of the concerto…an interpretation of the highest class” (Diapason Sep. 2000). Bin Huang’s Baroque Violin Favorite on the Naxos Label was given the editor’s choice in the American Record Guide (2003).
