Pianists Fei-Fei Dong and Steven Lin. Pianists Fei-Fei Dong and Steven Lin. (Peter Schaaf)

Since 1984, each Young Artists Showcase season has opened with a concert by the winners of the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition at Juilliard’s Paul Hall. The competition winners are presented to the public each October, and also awarded a full scholarship to The Juilliard School. In 2012, the winners were pianists Fei-Fei Dong and Steven Lin.

Fei-Fei Dong made her orchestral debut at age 13 with the Macau Youth Symphony Orchestra in China. Taiwanese-American Steven Lin has appeared at venues all over the world, including the Louvre in Paris, Seoul Arts Center in Korea, and Sendai Cultural Center in Japan.

The two pianists were recorded live in performance this past October at Paul Hall. The concert was hosted by Bob Sherman and included performances of Chopin, Liszt and Juilliard alumnus Lowell Leibermann, along with appearances by Juilliard’s president Joseph Polisi and Young Artists Showcase benefactor-in-chief, Terry McGraw of McGraw-Hill Financial.
