Recent performances abroad include a solo recital tour of Taiwan and four recitals in China, as well as concerts with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva, the Costa Rica National Symphony, Finca World Piano Festival in the Canary Islands, a recital tour of Japan, and other performances in Asia with the DITTO Ensemble. He has appeared on radio broadcasts, including NPR’s From the Top and WQXR’s Young Artists Showcase, and he is featured prominently in the Cliburn Competition documentary film, Virtuosity, which premiered on PBS in 2015. Among the honors Lin has received are the John Giordano Jury Chairman Discretionary Award at the 2013 Van Cliburn Piano Competition and the Silver Medal at the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition in 2014.

 

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.” He recently completed the prestigious performance diploma program at Curtis Institute of Music, and before that, he earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree at Juilliard.
