“Tony Chen Lin is a true artist. Rarely have I encountered a finer musician who has something truly exceptional to say in music. He has a strong musical personality that speaks to audiences.” – Tamás Vásáry
Tony Chen Lin started with keyboard lessons at the age of 12, advancing to piano with Rosemary Stott the following year, and made his concerto debut aged 14 after winning the Christchurch Junior Concerto Competition. He subsequently won the 40th New Zealand National Concerto Competition, 1st prize in the Weiner Leó National Chamber Music Competition in Budapest, 2nd prize and the Best Classical Sonata Performance Award in the Kerikeri International Piano Competition and is a multiple recipient of the Dame Malvina Major Foundation Arts Excellence Award. His debut album DIGRESSIONS on Rattle Records received critical acclaim while also reaching No.1 on the New Zealand Classical Chart.
After completing his Bachelor of Music in piano and composition with Péter Nagy and Gao Ping at Canterbury University in 2009, Tony moved to Europe where he completed his Master of Music and Soloist Diploma (Konzertexamen) with Distinction at the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg, Germany. He also received mentoring from Balázs Szokolay and András Kemenes at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, and has benefited immensely from the mentorship of pianist Edith Fischer.
A passionate chamber musician, Tony regularly performs in a cello-piano duo with his duo partner, Balázs Dolfin. He is a regular guest artist at the Semaine Internationale Piano & Musique de Chambre festival in Switzerland. Tony currently resides in Budapest where he is currently pursuing a DLA (Doctor Liberalium Artium) at the Liszt Academy.
