Nelson, John; Hou, Yi-Jia Susanne; Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Susanne Hou was a scholarship student at Toronto’s Conservatory of Music followed by the Juilliard School under Dorothy DeLay, Cho-Liang Lin and Naoko Tanaka. She rose to fame on the international concert scene when she unanimously won the Long-Thibaud, Lipizer and Sarasate International Violin Competitions. Since then she has collaborated with world-renowned conductors and fellow artists such as Rostropovich, Zuckerman, Alan Gilbert, Spivakov, and more. Susanne has twice collaborated with the Oscar nominated director Atom Egoyan and the Oscar winning composer Mychael Danna. She has her own music video The Devil’s Delight. Of particular poignancy is the fact that Susanne Hou’s father Bo Zhi Hou was the top violinist at the Shanghai Conservatory at the time this concerto was written, going on to lead major orchestras in China before and during the Cultural Revolution. Mr. Hou was asked to make the world premiere recording of the Butterfly Lover’s Concerto but, due to sensitive political and societal circumstances, he ultimately left the country without having had the opportunity to make the recording. He therefore now passes the torth of his legacy in China, and his unfulfilled destiny of recording The Butterfly Lovers’ Concerto, to his daughter- Susanne Hou.
