Gordon Shi-Wen Chin (b1957)

Born in 1957, Gordon Chin has established himself as one of the most prolific and sought-after composers in his native Taiwan. Chin’s repertoire includes four symphonies, a cantata, an opera, three violin concertos, a triple concerto, a double concerto, a cello concerto, a piano concerto, numerous choral works, chamber works, five percussion quartets, and various works for solo instruments. Chin was born in Taiwan, spent his teenage years in Japan, and earned his doctoral degree from the Eastman School of Music under the tutelage of Samuel Adler, Warren Benson and Christopher Rouse.

Chin has been honoured by numerous commissions from major ensembles and institutions in North America, Asia and Europe. In 2013 his Triple Concerto was given its première in Taiwan, his clarinet quintet Cry Out was performed in Tokyo, and the piano quintet Moon Light Sorrow was performed at Lincoln Center. In 2014 the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan gave the première of a symphonic work The Dance of Mata in Taipei, and the Northwest Sinfonietta gave the first performance of his orchestral piece Fantasy on Theme Remembrance in Seattle. During the summer of 2014, he led the combined forces of Yin-Qi and the Tokyo-based Euodia Chorus and Orchestra in a concert tour of Japan.
