Susanne Hou was a scholarship student at Toronto’s Conservatory of Music followed by the Juilliard School. She rose to fame on the international concert scene when she unanimously won the Long-Thibaud, Lipizer and Sarasate International Violin Competitions. Of particular poignancy is the fact that Susanne Hou’s father Bo Zhi (Alexander) 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 Lovers 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 torch of his legacy in China, and his unfulfilled destiny of recording The Butterfly Lovers Concerto, to his daughter – Susanne Hou.
