Of playing the Wieniawski del Gesù violin, Paul says: “Every day I feel like I learn something new from this violin.”
Helen Huang made her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 8. Two years later she performed with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Kurt Masur. Her immaculate technique and eloquent sensitivity produced a multi-faceted career as soloist, chamber music player, and appearances with major orchestras in the U.S. and abroad.
“Despite these individual credentials under spotlight, Helen and Paul gave plenty of rewarding evidence of their teammate stature at Jordan Hall.” (Boston Musical Intelligencer)
