Jenny Lin is admired for her charismatic stage presence and adventurous programming, with an ability to combine classical and contemporary literature. Her orchestral engagements have included the American Symphony, Winnipeg Symphony, Flemish Radio Orchestra, NDR and SWR Radio orchestras, and Orchestra Sinfonica Nationale della RAI. Her concerts have taken her to Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Kennedy Center, MoMA, Whitney Museum, National Gallery of Art, Freer Gallery, and Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, appearing at Festivals such as Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart, BAM’s Next Wave, Spoleto/USA, Kings Place London, Divonne Festival France, Chopin Festival Austria, Schleswig-Holstein Festival Germany and Shanghai New Music Festival.
Since 2000, Ms. Lin’s discography includes more than 20 critically-acclaimed recordings on Steinway & Sons, Hänssler Classic, eOne, BIS, Albany and Sunrise Records. Most recently, she released a disc of Stravinsky solo piano works, including Agosti’s rarely-recorded arrangement of the Firebird Suite. Her disc of Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87, was voted Best of 2009 by The Washington Post. Other highly-praised releases include Federico Mompou’s Musica Callada; music by Valentin Silvestrov, The 11th Finger, a disc of recent piano works by Ligeti, Tenney, Vivier; and Get Happy, an album of Broadway song arrangements by pianists such as Stephen Hough, Marc-André Hamelin and Christopher O’Riley.
Ms. Lin is the central figure in Cooking for Jenny by Elemental Films, a musical documentary portraying her journey to Spain. She is also one of the featured artists on Speaking for Myself, a film by Bert Shapiro about Manhattan, as seen through the eyes of eight contemporary artists.
Born in Taiwan and raised in Austria, Ms. Lin studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna, the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore and the Fondazione Internazionale per il pianoforte in Como, Italy. She holds a bachelor’s degree in German literature from The Johns Hopkins University.
