Whirlwind American tours and performances across the globe have earned pianist Alpin Hong the reputation as a modern-day Pied Piper. From Walt Disney Hall to the White House, his mastery of stunning technique, emotional range and rare humor continues to move audiences of all ages to standing ovations.
Rooted in extensive classical training and a background in extreme sports, martial arts and video games, Mr. Hong is a creative force unmatched in his vitality and charisma.
The New York Times called him “a pianistic firebrand” in a review of his standing-room-only New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.
The Idaho Statesman said, “Hong cut a magnetic physical presence and charmed the audience with engaging, powerful movements that were fun to watch. Throughout the piece, he and the orchestra showed a wonderful give and take.”
The Santa Barbara News Press hailed him as “…a tour de force. Mr. Hong evoked a kind of Beatlemania when he came on stage. What a showman! What a musician!” His ability to captivate young audiences prompted the Ocala Star-Banner to call him “Classical for the iGeneration.”
Mr. Hong’s visionary approach to arts education makes him a sought-after clinician and Artist-in-Residence worldwide.
