As part of its well-honed list of the World Classical Music Series performers for 2019, dcc Dubai Concert Committee is bringing another child prodigy-turned-maestro to the stage: Steven Lin.
Lin, a Taiwanese American pianist, who won a full scholarship to study at The Juilliard School at the age of ten, went on to debut with New York Philharmonic in Avery Fisher Hall at age 13. And since then, there’s been no looking back. His now crowded collection of trophies includes an award won at the Concert Artists Guild Competition and the John Giordano Jury Chairman Discretionary Award, won 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 worldwide. A quote form Steven Lin: Beethoven is inspiring to me in the sense that he was ahead of his time. Knowing he wasn’t the most “talented” at the classical way (like Mozart) of composing, he started his own approach. That obsessiveness led to the change in aesthetic of the music of his time. Liszt revolutionized how piano concerts are perceived. He was the first rock star of classical pianists. No one had yet ever been this celebrated during his lifetime. Schumann, being a late bloomer, was a great writer. His imagination for story-telling makes his music one of the most original and contemporary.
