Quotes & Highlights

See videos of Hong at his website.


Whirlwind American tours and performances across the globe have earned pianist Alpin Hong the reputation as a modern day Pied Piper. His combination of stunning technique, emotional range, and rare humor continues to bring audiences young and old to their feet.

In July 2005, Gramophone magazine declared his first, self-titled CD (works of Scarlatti, Brahms, Debussy and Stravinsky on MSR Classics) “a debut that enhances this young pianist’s reputation,” praising his “strong finger-work and keen ear for voice-leading.” The release of his second album, friendtaskmasterteacher, sold out of its first run within a matter of weeks and garnered critical acclaim.
