  • “Lin demonstrates triumphantly what we – and, not incidentally, her fellow pianists – encounter too infrequently… She concludes with a blazing performance of Guido Agosti’s cripplingly difficult 1928 transcription of three movements from The Firebird. Another superbly recorded Steinway disc, and another notable achievement from this gifted and imaginative artist.”
    – Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone

    “Stravinsky may not have written that many works for solo piano. But he left pianists some astonishing scores, especially the Piano Sonata and the Serenade in A, along with many smart shorter works and charming miniatures. The excellent and inquisitive American pianist Jenny Lin, born in Taiwan in 1973, plays just about the complete Stravinsky solo piano music on this impressive release, from Steinway & Sons, which some years ago started a recording label.”
    – Anthony Tommasini, ARTSBEAT

    “Jenny Lin was first introduced to Stravinsky for piano through the late Italian pianist and teacher Guido Agosti who had presented her with his Firebird Suite 1928 transcription. To conclude her program, Lin performs Agosti’s arrangement of three movements from the suite. She skillfully plays each movement with the polyrhythms, color and impressiveness heard in the full Stravinsky masterpiece.”
