Hu Shenghua, a Chinese violinist and conductor. The first Chinese to hold the Second Violinist position of New York MET Orchestra, creating the precedent in the history of the orchestra to have a Chinese holding the place. Hu won Grammy Awards many times and the gold award of the World Violin Competition. He is also currently the conductor and director of the New York Chamber Orchestra, often seen on big stages around the world. Hu Shenghua cooperated with music masters at world level many times, including James Levine, Simon Rattle, Perlman, Dudamel, Yo-Yo Ma, Cho-liang Lin, Gergiev, etc..
Hu Shenghua's today's performance has the charm and rhyme of old-style performers. His use of the bow is full of flexibility and strength, the pressure sometimes makes a deep but bright sound, and sometimes making it unpredictable. Corresponding to this is the firm vibrato made by the left hand, expressing different emotions at different speeds. His way of performance is abundant; the contrast of firm and weak is fascinated; the change of speed brings the audiences to his musical world, soaring freely. Hu has special understandings of almost all types of composers! Additionally, he thinks and considers every piece, every phrase, and every note deeply, Hu gives the values right at the point, not too much, not too little, overly perfect! It is also being responsible to one's self and the listeners by treating music seriously and loyally. He is a real music master!
All of these must give thanks to the teacher Hu met in America, Albert Markov, the father of the famous violinist Alexander Markov, who is one of the most outstanding violin masters in the 20th century. The reason why he did not get the fame equally as his violin techniques may be because he chose a low profile art life, or he is not good at political tricks. He trained a Chinese violin learner to a skillful, musically attractive violin performer, this also shows his ability to teach the instrument and music. Hu Shenghua is being called King Paganini, Markov's only Chinese student, similar to the Wing Chun master, Ip Man's disciple Bruce Lee in the Chinese martial art field. Hu is a legendary person in the Chinese music industry, and also a pretension of Oriental Classical Music altar!
