Jenny Lin is admired for her charismatic stage presence and adventurous programming, with an ability to combine classical and contemporary literature. Her orchestral engagements have taken her around the world appearing with the American Symphony, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Winnipeg Symphony, La Orquesta Sinfónica de Gijón in Spain, Flemish Radio Orchestra, SWR Rundfunkorchester in Germany, Orchestra Sinfonica Nationale della RAI in Italy, and National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan. In New York Ms. Lin has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Miller Theatre, MoMA, Whitney Museum and Le Poisson Rouge. Her festival appearances have taken her to Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart, BAM’s Next Wave, Spoleto/USA, Kings Place in London, the Divonne Festival in France, the Chopin Festival in Austria, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival and Husum Piano Rarities Festival in Germany and the Shanghai New Music Festival in China.

Ms. Lin’s extensive discography includes more than 20 critically-acclaimed recordings on Steinway & Sons, Hänssler Classic, eOne, BIS, Albany and Sunrise Records. She released a disc of Stravinsky solo piano works today, including Agosti’s rarely-recorded arrangement of the Firebird Suite. Her previous recording is Get Happy, an album of Broadway song arrangements by pianists including Stephen Hough, Marc-André Hamelin and Christopher O’Riley. Her disc of Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87, was voted Best of 2009 by The Washington Post. Other highly-praised releases include Federico Mompou’s Musica Callada; The Eleventh Finger, a disc of recent piano works by Ligeti, Tenney, Vivier and others; and the world premiere recording of Drama by Valentin Silvestrov. Two new releases are scheduled for 2015, an album for children and a two-piano disc with Uri Caine.

Ms. Lin is the central figure in Cooking for Jenny by Elemental Films, a musical documentary portraying her journey to Spain to meet composer Javier López de Guereña in preparation of the world premiere of his piano concerto Zahara. She is also one of the featured artists on Speaking for Myself, a film by Bert Shapiro about Manhattan, as seen through the eyes of eight contemporary artists.

Born in Taiwan and raised in Austria, Ms. Lin studied at the HochschulefürMusik in Vienna, the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore and the Fondazione Internazionale per il pianoforte in Como, Italy. She holds a bachelor’s degree in German literature from The Johns Hopkins University.
