The Great Piano Sonatas in Concert with Steinway Artist Jenny Lin

By Mittie Roger

This is a one-off opportunity to hear what The Washington Post describes as “one of the most interesting pianists in America.” Jenny Lin has been hailed by The New York Times for her “gift for melodic flow” and “remarkable technical command.”

Jenny Lin embodies a surprising amalgamation of qualities and talents. This Taiwan-born New Yorker grew up in Austria. She is as elegant as she is accessible, and in her technique, she is as powerful as she is refined. Gramophone Magazine called her an “an exceptionally sensitive pianist;” however, she’s equally known for her charisma and strong stage presence. Additionally, she holds a bachelor’s degree in German Literature from The Johns Hopkins University—clearly a fascinating woman beyond her immense musical talents. This year she will be touring internationally, accompanying Phillip Glass in his Piano Etudes, making her debut in Lincoln Center’s Great Performers Series, and releasing Melody’s Mostly Musical Day, her illustrated album for children.

To name her accolades would overwhelm the page, but among them are concerts in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, the Kennedy Center, and MoMA, and a multitude of international festivals and concerts. Her discography includes more than 30 recordings and a central role in Cooking for Jenny by Elemental Films, a musical documentary about her journey to Spain to meet and work with composer Javier López de Guereña. Recent and popular recordings include Get Happy, a Broadway tribute with arrangements from many of piano’s greats, The Spirio Sessions, a two-piano disc with Uri Caine, and epic renditions of Liszt’s Sonata and Schumann’s Fantasie, both of which will be featured in her San Miguel concert.

All-Music Guide described Lin’s technique as “nothing less than superhuman.” Inspiration and dedication produce Lin’s incredible recordings and performances, and Lin is so deeply inspired by the music she interprets that it’s no wonder she leaves her audiences spellbound. She will be performing some of her favorites, like Scriabin, Schumann, and Liszt for her Pro Musica debut. We know our audiences will feel as inspired as she does. As Gramophone Magazine said of Lin’s recordings of Stravinsky’s solo piano music, it is “another notable achievement from this gifted and imaginative artist.” We can’t wait for you to share in her imaginative gifts as well.

The “confident fingers” of renowned Steinway artist Lin and her “spectacular technique” will make their San Miguel debut at St Paul’s Church on Sunday, October 8, at 5pm. Tickets for the concerts at St. Paul’s are 150, 300, and 400 pesos donation each and are on sale at Tesoros in the Biblioteca Pública, La Conexión (only at Aldama 3), and at the concert 45 minutes before performance time.
