Hahn-Bin Gives Debut Violin Recital

Very Fashion Forward

by: Colin Oettle

Hahn-Bin, last year’s winner of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, gave his debut recital at Zankel Hall last Thursday featuring an eclectic assortment from the violin repertoire. Known only by his first name, Hahn-Bin and his haircut have studied with violinist Itzhak Perlman for the past 10 years. His recital program included standards by Kreisler, Chopin, and Mozart, with contemporary selections by Schnittke, Cage, Lutoslawski, and Penderecki.

According to reviewer Allan Kozinn, the contextual jumps between each piece were somewhat jarring, but one could not deny the “distinct characterizations Hahn-Bin brought to each score.” He continued to compliment both his “rich, varied tone and his technical facility.”
