World Classical Music Series Presents Steven Lin Piano

Taiwanese American pianist Steven Lin is an immediately 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,” and 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 worldwide. A quote form Steven Lin: Beethoven is inspiring to me in the sense that he was ahead of his time. Knowing he wasn’t the most “talented” at the classical way (like Mozart) of composing, he started his own approach. That obsessiveness led to the change in aesthetic of the music of his time. Liszt revolutionized how piano concerts are perceived. He was the first rock star of classical pianists. No one had yet ever been this celebrated during his lifetime. Schumann, being a late bloomer, was a great writer. His imagination for story-telling makes his music one of the most original and contemporary.
