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.  The New York Times lauded his “crystalline energy…clear and persuasive ideas…and remarkable breadth of coloration” and called him “a pianistic firebrand” in a review of his standing-room only New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.  Other critics have raved about Mr. Hong’s performances.  “Hong’s warmth, charm and seemingly boundless energy were contagious, and he brought those qualities in abundance to his performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 37 in C minor with the Mobile Symphony Orchestra,” praised the Mobile Press-Register.  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.”
