Taiwanese American pianist Steven Lin is an immediately engaging and imaginative young artist, applauded by the New York Times for playing music 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.
Steven Lin's artistry was clear from an early age when he was accepted by The Julliard School on a full scholarship to study with Yoheved Kaplinsky at the age of 10, which in turn led to his debut with the New York Philharmonic in Avery Fisher Hall when he was only 13. His schedule in recent years has included recitals and concerto appearances throughout the world. He was appeared on numerous radio broadcasts and is featured prominently in the Cliburn Competition documentary film, Virtuosity, which premiered on PBS in 2015.
When not making music, Steven describes himself as an 'NBA basketball fanatic.' Despite living most of his life on the east coast, he is a passionate L.A. Lakers fan.
