Pianist Jenny Lin Celebrates the Music of Valentin Silvestrov at the White Light Festival
Nov. 01, 2017
In marking the 80th birthday this season of Valentin Silvestrov, Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival presents a recital by pianist Jenny Lin on November 12 celebrating the composer’s own meditations on works by Mozart, Schubert, Chopin and others.
Lin's recital, highlighting some of Silvestrov’s most reverent and affecting works, includes his widely performed Der Bote (“The Messenger”) as well as his Benedictus, Wedding Waltz, Chopin Moments and Postludium. The performance takes place at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.
Silvestrov is currently composer-in-residence with the Staatskapelle Weimar where the world premiere of his Violin Concerto, featuring the young celebrated violinist Valeriy Sokolov, is eagerly awaited on January 14, 2018. View the score of his new concerto, below:
