About Korean American violinist Hahn-Bin:
His eyes darting, not unlike a Balinese dancer, eyes opened in dramatic shock one moment, closed in meditation the next.
A plethora of emotions floated across his young face, from innocence to showing a knowledge transcending time and space.
Frequently, his slow-motion body movements evoked kabuki theater. Bending over, leaning back, swaying side to side, he played with his entire body. It is not often that a violin concert is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. You could not take your gaze away from him …
Before each piece, he steadied himself with a half-minute, Zen-like pause, achieving an inner calm that he then abandoned with wild emotion.
