JOSEPH LIN

The violinist Joseph Lin has earned broad recognition for his mature artistry. He was awarded First Prize at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in 1996 at the age of seventeen, and was named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts the same year. In 1999 he became the youngest musician ever to receive the Pro Musicis International Award. In 2000 he won one of the top prizes at the Hanover International Violin Competition, and the following year he won First Prize at the inaugural Michael Hill World Violin Competition in New Zealand.

An active concerto soloist, Joseph Lin has appeared with the Santa Fe Symphony, New Japan Philharmonic, Sapporo Symphony, Taiwan National Symphony, Kiev Chamber Orchestra, Moravian Philharmonic, and the Auckland Philharmonic. Other concerto engagements have included the Fort Worth Symphony with Miguel Harth-Bedoya, the Orchestra of St Luke’s with Peter Oundjian, the Boston Symphony with Seiji Ozawa, the Boston Pops conducted by Keith Lockhart and the orchestras of Grand Rapids and Kansas City. Recitals have taken him to the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, the Salle Cortot in Paris, City Hall in Hong Kong and throughout Japan, where he has presented all-unaccompanied programmes to great acclaim.

His chamber music appearances include the Ravinia and Marlboro Music Festivals, the Seattle Chamber Music Society and tours with Musicians from Marlboro. Joseph Lin is a member of the Juilliard String Quartet (1st violinist) and a former member of the Formosa Quartet, which won First Prize and the Amadeus Prize at the 2006 London International String Quartet Competition.

His recordings for Naxos include a release of works for violin and piano by Korngold [8.557067]. Joseph Lin has taken time in recent years to travel and live in China. In 2004 he studied gu qin (the ancient Chinese seven-string zither) as a Fulbright Scholar in Beijing, and in 2005 he began an annual Chamber Music Workshop at the China Conservatory in Beijing. In addition to his interest in Asia, he continues to promote and explore a broad range of contemporary music. His collaboration with percussionist Svet Stoyanov received enthusiastic response at New York City’s River to River Festival.

Joseph Lin began his violin studies with Mary Canberg. He attended the Juilliard School Pre-College Division as a student of Shirley Givens and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College while studying violin with Lynn Chang. He is an Assistant Professor of Violin at Cornell University until June 2011 thereafter joining the faculty of the Juilliard School.
