  • “In a Russia still bathing in nostalgia for Chekhov’s novellas and the twilight romanticism of Tchaikovsky, the appearance on the musical scene of Sergei Prokofiev was a major artistic turning point. In the context of early 20th century complacency, his music was soon to overturn many an article of faith. And in its stylistic expression, my own music is partially inspired by 20th c. Russian tradition, a legacy whose spiritual depth constantly nourishes my imagination with crucial aspects of its mysterious essence.” (Kirill Zaborov) The works by these two composers, Prokofiev and Zaborov, are performed here by Jenny Lin. Lin is one of the most respected young pianists today, admired for her adventurous programming and charismatic stage presence. Her ability to combine classical and contemporary literature has brought her to the attention of international critics and audiences. She has been acclaimed for her “remarkable technical command” and “a gift for melodic flow” by The New York Times. The Washington Post praises “Lin’s confident fingers… spectacular technique…”, “…surely one of the most interesting pianists in America right now…”
