Waarts showed an uncommon, preternatural sense of tonal color and lyrical beauty on the instrument.”
— Washington Post

With Chelsea Wang, piano

He has already garnered worldwide recognition, having captured the Audience Prize at the 2015 Queen Elisabeth Competition; First Prize at the 2014 Menuhin Competition; and Second Prize and the Audience Prize in the 2013 Montreal International Competition. As Winner of the 2013 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he made recital debuts last season at the Kennedy Center and Merkin Concert Hall, to rave reviews. Watch Stephen Waarts perform.
