Taiwanese American pianist Steven Lin is an engaging and imaginative young artist, applauded by the New York Times for playing that is “…immaculately voiced and enhanced by admirable subtleties of shading and dynamics.” His growing list of awards features the Concert Artists Guild Competition and the John Giordano Jury Chairman Discretionary Award at the 2013 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. His dynamic playing at the 2014 Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition was recognized when he was awarded the Silver Medal as well as numerous performance prize engagements in Israel and worldwide. Featured performances this season include a recital at The Smithsonian Museum of American Art in DC, Shenandoah University and a five-city tour of China, including Shanghai and Shenzhen, as well as concerto appearances with the Adrian Symphony orchestra, Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, DuPage Symphony (IL), California’s Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, Tulare County Symphony and the Evergreen Symphony of Taiwan. Recent orchestral engagements include the Kansas City and Fort Worth Symphony orchestras, as well as his debut in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium with the New York Youth Symphony. Internationally, Mr. Lin has performed solo tours in Taiwan and Japan, with the DITTO Ensemble on a tour of Korea and China, and as guest with the National Taiwan Symphony, the Evergreen Symphony Orchestra (Taipei), the Taipei Symphony Orchestra, the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva, the Costa Rica National Symphony, and a recital at the Finca World Piano Festival in the Canary Islands.
"His execution of the composer’s hallmark filigree passages was particularly impressive, creating speedy, yet diaphanous webs of crystalline pianissimo sound." -- Charleston Today
