(b 1957 )

Born in Taiwan in 1957, Gordon Chin is among the most active composers in his native country, with a wide range of orchestral and choral works, chamber music, and works for solo instruments. He was a pupil of Samuel Adler and Christopher Rouse at the Eastman School of Music.

Orchestral Music

Based on his own autobiographical poems, Chin’s Formosa Seasons was written for the violinist Lin Cho-Liang, to be played in a programme with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The Double Concerto for violin and cello is based on ideas expressed in the four movement titles: ‘Drifting Shadow’, ‘A Flowering Sacrifice’, ‘In Expectation’ and ‘Yearning: A Sweet Torture’.
