Jenny Lin Performs World Premiere of William Bolcom's 'Suite of Preludes' for Piano

September 22, 2021 | By Jonah Creech-Pritchett
Social Media Associate and PR Assistant at Bucklesweet


The program will also feature Philip Glass’ Passacaglia and selections from The Hours soundtrack

SATURDAY, OCT 2 at 7pm at Hudson Hall in Hudson, NY

HUDSON, NY - August 31, 2021: Pianist Jenny Lin will give the world premiere performance of composer William Bolcom’s “Suite of Preludes” on October 2, 2021. The nine-movement suite shares the bill with music by Philip Glass, Bolcom’s friend and contemporary. The two met in the 1960s in Paris while Glass studied with teaching great Nadia Boulanger, and Bolcom with composer Darius Milhaud and both will turn 85 next year. Lin will perform one of Glass’ recent works Passacaglia and selections from his soundtrack to the 2002 film The Hours.

"I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to present the music from two American legends on the same program,” said Jenny Lin. “Two composer-pianists - I call them “super humans” - composers who are at the same time amazing performers."

The nine movements are all miniatures and depict the personal side of Bolcom - from humor, obscure thematic quotes to jazz chords - all within the European American style for which the composer is known.

Jenny Lin, a Steinway artist, has made a name for herself on the world stage thanks to her “remarkable technical command” and “gift for melodic flow” (New York Times). The Washington Post has extolled her “confident fingers” and “spectacular technique,” while Gramophone has hailed her as “an exceptionally sensitive pianist”. Lin was born in Taiwan, raised in Austria, and moved to New York, where she resides. At the age of four, with no piano at home, she began playing the instrument at her grandmother’s house. Educated in Europe and the US, she has built an international reputation distinguished by inventive collaborations with a breadth of artists. She has a close affinity with Philip Glass, whose Etudes she performs globally, and which inspired her to embark on a commissioning initiative, The Etudes Project. Lin’s discography numbers more than 30 recordings, ranging from the classic piano canon to modern milestones to Broadway songs. She performed at Hudson Hall in 2011 and 2013.

American composer William Bolcom’s body of work—symphonic, ragtime, choral, and more—has garnered him laurels including a Pulitzer Prize, the National Medal of Arts, and a GRAMMY Award. He is a recent awardee of the prestigious $100,000 Nemmers Prize given to outstanding composers by Northwestern University. He taught on the faculty of the University of Michigan’s School of Music from 1973 to 2008, where he was named the Ross Lee Finney Distinguished University Professor of Composition in 1994. He has frequently performed and recorded with his wife, mezzo-soprano Joan Morris; together they have released 25 recordings. In 2018, nine world premieres commemorated his 80th birthday.

Philip Glass, the iconic composer and pianist, has made an indelible imprint on contemporary music, with remarkable achievements in opera, symphony, film, dance and more. He studied at the University of Chicago, The Juilliard School, and with Nadia Boulanger in Paris, eventually landing in New York, where he founded the Philip Glass Ensemble. He has described his work as “music with repetitive structures,” which has garnered acclaim in both classical and pop culture realms and influenced generations of musicians.
