  • The artist

    Szuhwa Wu's trans-disciplinary projects include her signature recital series that pairs historical works on period violin with recent compositions for violin and electronics.  Her contemporary string quartet, Quatuor Impact, partners with leading lighting, costume designers, composers, and choreographers to create multimedia shows at the intersection of acoustic instrument and technology.  She has also designed performances for the Centre Pompidou (Paris), Musée de la vie romantique (Paris), the National Theatre (Besançon), and as founder and artistic director of her "Playing On The Edge" Festival. In all her work, Szuhwa Wu challenges and expands listeners' imaginations, inviting audiences to become immersed in new creative environments.

    Noted for her "lightness, grace, and purity,"(New York Times) and the expressive authority and sensitivity of her playing, Szuhwa Wu's performances build "a stimulating tension" (Neue Zuercher Zeitung) with a flair for the imaginative and unexpected.  Equally adept in period performance and contemporary repertoire, Ms. Wu's performance credits range from New York's Lincoln Center and Miller Theatre, to the Paris Philharmonie, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, and the National Theater of Taipei.  

    You can find more information on the artist on her website.
