    violonist

Bio

Born in 1994, the Belgian violinist Sylvia Huang had her first violin lessons with her father and continued her studies at the Académie des Arts de la Ville de Bruxelles. She won first prize at the Belfius Classics National Musical Competition in 2004 and at the Lions European Musical Competition in 2008. She was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra from 2009 to 2010 before joining the second violin section of the Belgian National Orchestra in September 2012. She was promoted to the position of co-principal violinist a year and a half later. Sylvia has been a member of the first violin section of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra since August 2014.

As a passionate chamber musician, she founded the GoYa Quartet Amsterdam with three of her RCO colleagues. After having won the prestigious "Prix de Salon 2015", awarded by the business network of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the GoYa Quartet Amsterdam was able to make recordings of two live performances of all Brahms and Schumann String Quartets.

Sylvia took part in several international festivals such as B-Klassiek Festival van Vlaanderen or Échappées Musicales du Médoc. In May 2019, she became laureate of the Queen Elisabeth International Competition and was awarded the Prix Musiq3 du Public and the Canvas-Klara Prijs.

Née en 1994, Sylvia commence le violon à l’âge de trois ans avec son père et devient plus tard élève à l’Académie des Arts de la Ville de Bruxelles. Après avoir été en février 2004, lauréate du Concours national de musique « Prix Rotary Breughel », elle remporte en novembre de la même année, un 1er prix au 40ème Concours national de musique « Belfius Classics ». En avril 2008, elle remporte le 1er prix au Concours national « Lions Musical Competition ». De 2009 à 2010, elle est recrutée par l’Orchestre des Jeunes de l’Union Européenne avant de devenir en septembre 2012, violoniste au sein de l’Orchestre National de Belgique. Depuis août 2014, Sylvia est membre du Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra d’Amsterdam.

Passionnée de musique de chambre, elle fonde en septembre 2014 avec trois de ses collègues le GoYa Quartet Amsterdam, avec lequel elle se produit régulièrement aux Pays-Bas ainsi qu’à l’étranger. Après avoir obtenu en 2015 le prestigieux « Prix de Salon » décerné par le business club de l’orchestre, le quatuor a pu réaliser un enregistrement live de deux concerts couvrant l’intégrale des quatuors de Brahms et de Schumann.

Sylvia a également participé à divers festivals internationaux dont B-Classic Festival van Vlaanderen ou encore les Echappées Musicales du Médoc. En mai 2019, elle est lauréate du Concours Musical International Reine Elisabeth et remporte le Prix Musiq3 du Public ainsi que le Canvas-Klara Prijs.

Geboren in 1994, leerde de Belgische violiste Sylvia Huang het vak van haar vader en studeerde verder aan de Académie des Arts de la Ville de Bruxelles. Ze won eerste prijzen op de National Musical Competition Belfius Classics in 2004 en de Lions European Musical Competition in 2008. Sylvia deed orkestervaring op bij het European Union Youth Orchestra en in september 2012 werd ze tweede violiste bij het Nationaal Orkest van België; anderhalf jaar later werd ze gepromoveerd tot co-solovioliste. Sinds augustus 2014 is ze eerste violiste bij het Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest.

Kamermuziek is een grote passie: samen met drie andere orkestcollega's vormt ze het GoYa Quartet Amsterdam. Na het winnen van de prestigieuze "Prix de Salon 2015", uitgereikt door de business club van het Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, kon het GoYa Quartet Amsterdam opnamen maken van twee live uitvoeringen van alle Brahms en Schumann Strijkkwartetten.

Sylvia nam deel aan verschillende internationale festivals zoals B-Klassiek Festival van Vlaanderen of Échappées Musicales du Médoc. In mei 2019 werd ze laureaat van de Koningin Elisabethwedstrijd en ze kreeg de Prix Musiq3 du Public en de Canvas-Klara Prijs.
