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.

This season, Hahn-Bin returns to 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 established
his virtuoso credentials with an
astonishingly cool rendering of his
ferociously difficult program,
dashing off tangled webs of
multiple stops without any hesitation
or struggle. Equally striking was the
broad, lustrous tone that Hahn-Bin
draw forth from his violin."
— The Washington Post

"The 22-year-old violin phenomenon's recital was without question the most exciting performance I've heard in years. Unusual, daring and original, one was quickly transported into Hahn-Bin's artistic universe by the sheer force of his personality and prodigious musical gift."
— The Omaha World Herald

"A tour de force...Eyes closed,
Hahn-Bin is calling spirits."
— Newcity Chicago

"Was it a deal with the devil that made this young superstar become so incredibly talented? Was it the training from Itzhak Perlman? No explanation suffices. Brilliant, audacious, and exuberant Hahn-Bin mesmerized the sold-out crowd."
— The Huffington Post

"The audience could not have been more impressed by Hahn-Bin's astonishing virtuoso passages, his warm and noble tone, and the extraordinary control he exercised over every attack."
— The Tribune

"The immense technical ability of the young virtuoso was astonishing. More important were the expressive dimensions of his boundlessly soaring manner of playing and the fascinating variety of his tonal palette."
— Die Rheinpfalz, Germany
