CHO-LIANG LIN, Violinist
Taiwanese-American violinist CHO-LIANG LIN, one of today's foremost violin virtuosos, appears annually with major orchestras and on key recital and chamber music series on five continents. Acclaimed for his beautifully nuanced playing, Mr. Lin was chosen by Musical America in 2000, as "Instrumentalist of the Year".
Mr. Lin's 2002-2003 season includes engagements with the Dallas Symphony with Andrew Litton; and at the Brooklyn Academy of Music performing Water Passion After St. Matthew, a choral and performance work commemorating the 250th anniversary of Bach's death, composed and conducted by Tan Dun. Among his guest appearances, are those with orchestras in Salt Lake City, California, and Florida. He will be heard in a recital at New York's Alice Tully Hall in May 2003. With the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, he performs in New York and on tour, highlighted by an appearance at Boston's Gardner Museum. Internationally, he performs in Europe and Asia.
Recently Mr. Lin played with great distinction as guest artist with the Boston Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, St. Louis Symphony, Houston Symphony, Montreal Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony, the Rochester Philharmonic and the Vancouver Symphony, among others. Overseas, he performed with orchestras in France, Sweden, Spain, the Netherlands, Japan, Singapore, Australia, China and Taiwan.
Cho-Liang Lin founded the Taipei International Music Festival in 1997, the first large-scale international music festival in the history of his native country. He led a second Festival in May 2000 and is now planning a third Festival in 2003. Some of the concerts have been shown on giant television simulcasts outside the concert hall, to audiences of up to thirty thousand cheering music lovers.
This summer he leads his second season at the helm of the La Jolla SummerFest, which includes the world premiere of a work for solo violin composed by Esa-Pekka Salonen for Mr. Lin. He also made return appearances in Aspen, Santa Fe, the Naantali Festival in Finland, and the Malaysian Philharmonic.
An advocate for contemporary composers, Cho-Liang Lin has premiered works by Tan Dun, Joel Hoffman, Christopher Rouse, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Elie Siegmeister, Bright Sheng, George Tsontakis and George Walker. In San Diego and Taipei, he has presented the world premiere of two concertos by the Taiwanese composer, Gordon Chin.
He has many resplendent recordings released on the Sony Classical label, some of which have won such awards as Gramophone's Record of the Year as well as two Grammy nominations. Recent albums include a disc of sonatas by Debussy, Poulenc and Ravel with pianist Paul Crossley and a Schubert chamber music disc. He has recorded Tan Dun's violin concerto Out of Peking Opera with the Helsinki Philharmonic led by Muhai Tang for the Ondine label. For Decca, he has recorded Aaron Jay Kernis' Concerto for Violin and Guitar with conductor Hugh Wolff and guitarist Sharon Isbin with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Soon to be released is a recording with the Helsinki Philharmonic for the Ondine label of the Rouse Violin Concerto (Mr. Lin performed both the world premiere and New York premieres).
Born in Taiwan in 1960, Cho-Liang Lin began his violin lessons when he was five years old. At the age of twelve, he went to Sydney to continue his musical studies. Three years later, inspired by an encounter with Itzhak Perlman, he arrived in New York in 1975 to audition for Mr. Perlman's teacher, the late Dorothy DeLay, at the Juilliard School. Within two years of his enrollment, Mr. Lin won the first Queen Sofia Violin Competition in Madrid and his concert career was soon launched. He has been a member of the Juilliard faculty since 1991 and resides in New York with his wife and daughter. His violin is the 1734 Guarneri del Gesù The Duke of Camposelice. (7/2002)
ANDRÉ-MICHEL SCHUB, Pianist
"Pianistically flawless… a formidable pianist with a fierce integrity," wrote Harold Schonberg in The New York Times of André-Michel Schub - 1974 winner of the Naumburg International Piano Competition, 1977 recipient of the Avery Fisher Recital Award, and 1981 Grand Prize winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. The Times accolade has been voiced in similar terms by major music critics around the world from the moment the artist made his recital debut at New York's Alice Tully Hall in 1974.
Mr. Schub's career is a distinguished one. He has repeatedly performed with the world's most prestigious orchestras, among them the Boston Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Los Angeles and the New York Philharmonics, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Bournemouth Symphony. The list of conductors with whom he has collaborated is equally impressive, including Erich Leinsdorf, James Levine, Eugene Ormandy, Seiji Ozawa, Sergiu Comissiona, Michael Gielen, Klaus Tennstedt, and Mstislav Rostropovich, who invited him to join the National Symphony Orchestra for its nationally telecast Fourth of July concert in 1986. His annual schedule includes recitals in major concert halls as well as appearances at the foremost music festivals, among them Mostly Mozart, Tanglewood, Ravinia, the Mann Music Center, the Blossom Festival, Wolf Trap, and the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico.
A longtime guest with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center - both on its series at Alice Tully Hall and on tour - he was recently named an Artist Member of the ensemble beginning with the 2002-2003 season. Since 1997 Mr. Schub has been Artistic Director of the Virginia Arts Festival Chamber Music Series, and in 1998 he was named Artistic Director of the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Among the highlights of his recent seasons have been concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra (at Saratoga), the Saint Louis Symphony, the Cincinnati Symphony, the Dallas Symphony, Miami's New World Symphony, the New York Pops Orchestra (at Carnegie Hall), the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, the Calgary Philharmonic, the Singapore Symphony, the Buffalo and Rochester Philharmonic Orchestras, and the Milwaukee Symphony (with which he also toured in Japan). From 1994-1996 he performed a new concerto by Daniel Asia with several American orchestras and recorded the work with the New Zealand Symphony. During the summer of 1996 he made an extensive tour of the Far East as soloist with the Asian Youth Orchestra.
He continues to tour annually in duo-recitals with violinist Cho-Liang Lin. Their recent schedule together has included appearances in Aspen, Dallas, Montreal, New York (Town Hall), San Diego and Washington, D.C. (the Kennedy Center), as well as a tour of Taiwan in June 1995. In October 1997 he returned to Taiwan to participate in the Taipei International Chamber Music Festival, established by Mr. Lin.
For television, Mr. Schub has appeared on "Live from Lincoln Center" with the Chamber Music Society (while an Artist-Member of that ensemble), and on PBS with the Boston Symphony conducted by Seiji Ozawa. He has also been seen on ABC's "Good Morning America," "CBS Sunday Morning," a PBS live presentation of the Sixth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and a three-part series about the Sixth Van Cliburn Competition on the cable station ARTS.
Born in France, André-Michel Schub came to the United States with his family when he was eight months old; New York City has been his home ever since. He began his piano studies with his mother when he was four and later continued his work with Jaseha Zayde. Mr. Schub first attended Princeton University, and then transferred to the Curtis Institute, where he studied with Rudolf Serkin from 1970 to 1973.
André-Michel Schub's recordings, for Vox Cum Laude and CBS Masterworks (now Sony Classical), include works of Beethoven, Brahms, and Liszt, as well as an all-Stravinsky album with Cho-Liang Lin. He also recorded music of Liszt, Mozart, and Schumann for the PianoDisc system. (7/2002)
