A special protégé of the legendary Itzhak Perlman, the dynamic 22-year-old violin virtuoso Hahn-Bin embodies the renaissance of classical music, fusing his highly evocative repertoire with pop performance art in the “extraordinary, intelligent and beautiful” (The Washington Post) concerts of his “inspired, innovative and bracing” (The New York Times) programs.
Born in Seoul, Hahn-Bin made his international debut at age twelve at the 42nd Grammy Awards in an event honoring Isaac Stern. Following a decade under the tutelage of Itzhak Perlman at The Juilliard School, Hahn-Bin made his critically-acclaimed debut in 2009 at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall as the recipient of the Peter Marino Concert Prize, following his First Prize win at the prestigious Young Concert Artists International Auditions.
Hahn-Bin makes his mainstage debut with the New York Youth Symphony in Carnegie Hall, performing the world premiere of “Still Life” for Violin and Orchestra, written by Christopher Cerrone and commissioned for Hahn-Bin by the New York Youth Symphony. The tour of his new recital project “The Five Poisons” will include performances in New York at the Rubin Museum of Art, and in Berlin at the Konzerthaus. Hahn-Bin’s recent engagements include Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, as well as appearances with the Queensland Orchestra in Australia, and all the major Korean orchestras including the Seoul, Bucheon, and Daejeon Philharmonics, both in Korea and on tour in Japan. Hahn-Bin is the recipient of an award from the Jack Romann Special Artists Fund of YCA
