This spring, Cho-Liang Lin looks forward to concerts in the United States and Asia, beginning with a reprisal of Lalo Schifrin's Letters from Argentina (given in the work’s tenth anniversary year) at the Yale School of Music on March 31.
While on the East Coast, Lin also returns to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center at the end of April for a public masterclass on April 20 and an all-Brahms recital on April 24. April also sees Lin as artist-in-residence at the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA. As part of his public events with the famed venue, Lin gives a recital with Ayke Agus on April 9 and returns on May 1 for a concert devoted to music of contemporary Chinese composers, performed on Western instruments.
Lin closes out May in Singapore, where he is currently serving as artist-in-residence with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. On May 23 and 24, he gives two all-Mozart programs that hear the composer's complete concertos for violin as well as several rondos and adagios. Concertos 1, 2, and 3 are performed on the 23rd; the remaining two are performed on the 24th.

Cho-Liang Lin will join the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens as their Artist-in-Residence for 2015. The Taiwanese-American violinist will join the Huntington to help promote an understanding of Chinese culture through the visual and performing arts, following in the footsteps of the venue's inaugural visiting artist, pipa virtuoso Wu Man.
Lin will host a series of public events at the Huntington, placing Chinese music in a modern context and exploring how such music is expressed through and composed for Western instruments. Such events include a free public lecture and performance on April 9 with pianist Ayke Agus, and a May 1 concert that will also hear Wu Man. Lin will also work with students at the Esteban Torres High School in Los Angeles.
