HAHN-BIN
December 13 at 7:30pm
$20
Hahn-Bin, whose name means 'the shining star' in Korean, launched The Renaissance of Classical Music in Spring 2010, an undertaking he calls "an all-encompassing project which aims to bring the quarantined genre into the mainstream pop culture." The latest installment in The Renaissance of Classical Music is Till Dawn Sunday a "hybrid music theater work where a gender defying storyline meets a genre-defying musical kaleidoscope," says Hahn-Bin. Weaving together the music of over 20 composers and set to a narrative written by Hahn-Bin himself, Till Dawn Sunday takes the audience on a voyage through the fullest spectrum of emotions with its four distinct episodes. "I want to be the Botox for the wrinkles and dents of the human heart," says the dynamic violinist Hahn-Bin, who has become a revolutionary force for classical music in the two short years following his Carnegie Hall debut. In a genre of his own - one he calls avant-pop classical - the bold young virtuoso's theatrical performances give rise to his strikingly personal tales about "love, fear, beauty, and terror." The Seoul-born New Yorker, whose early artistic influences include Pedro Almodóvar, Maria Callas and Liza Minnelli, made his international debut at age 12 at the Grammy Awards in 2000, drawing a standing ovation from the legendary Isaac Stern. His groundbreaking Carnegie performance in October 2009, preceded by a decade of study with the preeminent Itzhak Perlman at The Juilliard School but for the Seoul-born New Yorker, it was no time to rest on his laurels.
