Pianist Jenny Lin: Glass Reflections
Sunday, November 14, 2021, 2PM
Born in Taiwan, raised in Austria, educated in Europe and America, Jenny Lin has built a vibrant international career, notable for innovative collaborations with a range of artists and creators. In this most unusual season, Lin has performed – both digital and in person – at the Mostly Mozart Festival, Washington Performing Arts, Winnipeg New Music, the Morris Museum, St. Olaf College, and elsewhere.
Jenny Lin also continues her collaboration with Philip Glass, performing his Etudes in concerts around the globe. This experience inspired Lin to create The Etudes Project, in which she works with a range of living composers to create new technical piano etudes, pairing each new piece with an etude from the classical canon. The results are featured on Sono Luminus albums; Volume 1 showcases Lin’s work with ICEBERG New Music, and Volume 2 will be released in 2021.
Critical Praise for Jenny Lin
“Bach’s presence also hovered over the featured artist of the evening, the dynamic pianist Jenny Lin, who played 5 of the 24 Preludes and Fugues by Shostakovich… On this night she was beautifully attentive to the Neo-Classical formalities and elegance of the Shostakovich works…“
