- Jenny Lin (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
Intelligent programming, a highly developed musical sensitivity, and an extraordinary sense of the musical possibilities of the piano are the hallmarks of Jenny Lin's artistic personality. Her extraordinary range includes everything from hyper-virtuosic avant-garde experimentalism to critically acclaimed bravura readings of Bloch's romantic "Concerto Symphonique." This new recording of Shostakovich's most extensive and impressive solo piano work has been unjustly neglected. Jenny Lin's insightful readings restore this work to its rightful place as one of the major piano cycles of the 20th century.
BBC Music Magazine
Jenny Lin... brings distinct virtues of her own to Shostakovich's supreme contrapuntal opus: above all, a crystalline clarity of phrasing and voice-leading, and a remarkably sensitive range of touch and accent.
