Unfiltered Music Festival

Night III: Jenny Lin

Jenny Lin 1920x1080

About the Event

Acclaimed piano virtuoso Jenny Lin, named by the Washington Post as “surely one of the most interesting pianists in America right now” and praised by countless critics for her “remarkable technical command and deep commitment to contemporary music” (The New York Times), “effortless, spectacular technique” (The Washington Post) and “exquisite sensitivity” (Dallas Morning News) has been performing regularly with superstar composer Philip Glass on tour for nearly a decade.

For her appearance at Fotografiska, Jenny pairs music by Glass with works by Ukraine’s best-known living composer, Valentin Silvestrov, who is now living as a refugee. Jenny’s program weaves together music of these two towering contemporary giants, both born in 1937 and both of whom shaped Jenny’s musical life and artistry in profound ways.
