リチャード リン RICHARD LIN
– VIOLIN BOW, Tourte model by KUNITAKA OHSE
A piece of art which helps me bring music alive.
Born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in Taiwan, Richard began his violin studies at the age of four. He gave his public debut at age of eleven performing the Saint-Saëns Violin Concerto No. 3 with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra. At sixteen, he moved to the United States to follow his teacher Dr. Gregory Lee who was newly named to the violin faculty at the University of Oklahoma. In the same year, Richard was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music and studied with respected pedagogue Aaron Rosand. He later received his master’s degree at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of renowned professor Lewis Kaplan.
Richard Lin is the newly crowned Gold Medalist of the 10th Quadrennial International Violin Competition of Indianapolis which took place in September of 2018. In addition to the Gold Medal, Richard captured three Special Prizes for his performances of Milstein’s Paganiniana in the Preliminaries, Kreisler’s Tambourin chinois in the Classical Finals and Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy in the Finals.
