Lin was born in Taiwan. A neighbor’s violin studies convinced
this 5-year old boy to do the same. At the age twelve, he moved
to Sydney to further his studies with Robert Pikler, a student
of Jenő Hubay. After playing for Itzhak Perlman in a master
class, the 13-year old boy decided that he must study with Mr.
Perlman’s teacher, Dorothy DeLay. At the age fifteen, Lin
traveled alone to New York and auditioned for the Juilliard
School and spent the next six years working with Ms DeLay.
A concert career was launched in 1980 with Lin’s debut playing
the Mendelssohn Concerto with the New York Philharmonic and
Zubin Mehta . He has since performed as soloist with virtually
every major orchestra in the world. His busy schedule on stage
around the world continues to this day. However, his wide
ranging interests have led him to diverse endeavors. At the age
of 31, his alma mater, Juilliard School, invited Lin to become
faculty. In 2006, he was appointed professor at Rice University.
He is currently music director of La Jolla SummerFest and the
Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival. Ever so keen
about education, he was music director of the Taiwan National
Symphony music camp and youth orchestra for four years.
In his various professional capacities, Cho-Liang Lin has
championed composers of our time. His efforts to commission new
works have led a diverse field of composers to write for him.
The list includes John Harbison, Christopher Rouse, Tan Dun,
John Williams, Steven Stucky, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Bright Sheng,
Paul Schoenfield, Lalo Schifrin, Joan Tower and many more.
Recently, he was soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Detroit
Symphony, Munich Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony, Cincinnati
Symphony, Nashville Symphony and Royal Philharmonic.
Lin performs on the 1715 Stradivari named “Titian” or a 2000
Samuel Zygmuntowicz. His many concerto, recital and chamber
music recordings on Sony Classical, Decca, BIS, Delos and Ondine
can be heard on Spotify or Naxos.com. His albums have won
Gramophone Record Of The Year, Grammy nominations and Penguin
