Pianophiles are in for a treat this May with a piano recital by Taiwan-born and US-based pianist Jenny Lin who has been drawing rave reviews for her adventurous programming, charismatic stage presence and scintillating brand of pianism.

Having wowed listeners both in concert and on disc with programmes that range from Broadway show tunes to music by pre-Soviet and early Soviet composers, Lin brings to Singapore an evening that compares and contrasts the turbulent complexities of Russian 20th century music in works by Shostakovich, Stravinksy and Arthur Vincent Lourié with the ideals of the Baroque and Romantic periods.

Lin's recital will see her juxtaposing a selection of Shostakovich's Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87 with those by Bach before she traverses a popular selection of Chopin, Liszt and Debussy and close the night with Italian pianist Guido Agosti's technically demanding and dazzling transcription of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite. Lin's recording of Shostakovich's Op. 87 was voted the "Best of 2009" by The Washington Post.

Born in Taiwan and raised in Austria, Jenny studied with Noel Flores at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna, with Julian Martin at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, and with Dominique Weber in Geneva. She has also worked with Leon Fleisher, Richard Goode, Blanca Uribe, Dimitri Bashkirov and Andreas Staier. Lin holds a bachelor's degree in German Literature from The Johns Hopkins University and currently resides in New York City where she also serves on the faculty of the 92nd Street Y.
