Since its founding in 1989, the Salon de Virtuosi has debuted and supported a wide array of young artists, many of whom have gone on to achieve international success. For the past few years, the society's gala awards ceremony has been held at Steinway Hall and emceed by the Young Artists Showcase host, Robert Sherman.

The Amphion String Quartet opens the 2012 winners' concert with Hugo Wolf's Italian Serenade. This ensemble should be familiar to WQXR listeners from their stellar performance at last November's Beethoven String Quartet Marathon. Next, flutist Noémi Győri performs a rarely-heard work by the 19th century flute pioneer Theobald Böhm alongside pianist Katalin Csillagh. Violinst Erika Mitsui plays Ravel’s Tzigane with pianist Eunice Kim and Vassily Primakov presented two solo piano works by Chopin. 

The Young Artists Showcase will present the 2013 Salon de Virtuosi winners this fall.
