Artist info

Linda Lin

Described as having “a penchant for flamboyance”, Linda Lin is one of the rising musicians of her generation. After winning the Young Artist of Australia at the age of 15, she made her debut performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at the ABC Iwaki Auditorium, which was broadcast live on 3MBS FM and ABC FM in Australia. Since then, she has been frequently performing and collaborating with artists worldwide.

With a flourishing career as an international soloist, Lin gives recitals across three continents including the UK, China and Australia, where she will return in the coming season for a recital tour around the country. She makes regular appearances across the UK including Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, National Portrait Gallery, Australia House, and has made her debut at Wigmore Hall in 2007 as the winner of the Derek Butler Award which marked her appearance on London BBC Radio 3's In Tune Classical programme. She has also received numerous awards and prizes in the UK, including the Sir Edward Cooper Prize, the Florence Hooton Concerto Prize, the Leverhulme Trust Scholarship, and the Associated Board International Scholarship.

Linda Lin was chosen to represent the RAM to take part in recitals and masterclasses in the prestigious International Manchester Cello Festival and has also worked with renowned artists including Ralph Kirshbaum, Steven Isserlis, Natalia Gutman, Philip Muller, Gary Hoffman and Leonid Gorokhov. Whilst leading various RAM orchestras and on trial with the Philharmonia Orchestra, she has had the privilege to work with prominent conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Sir Colin Davis, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Mark Elder, Trevor Pinnock, Lutz Kohler, and composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davis.

Originally from Australia, Linda Lin studied with David Strange and Felix Schmidt at the Royal Academy of Music, where she was invited to be a Leverhulme Fellow and still remains to teach college students.

Daniel Swain read Music at St. Anne’s College, Oxford winning a Scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music. He graduated with the highest honours and an ‘Award for Excellence’, and was subsequently awarded a Junior Fellowship.

He has performed in many of the major London venues including the Wigmore, Cadogan, Queen Elizabeth, and Royal Festival Halls, the Purcell Room, the churches of St-Martin-in-the-Fields and St. James’, Piccadilly, the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, and the Millennium Centre, Cardiff. Daniel is a member of the Randolph Piano Trio and has also performed with such internationally acclaimed artists as cellists Alexander Baillie, Leonid Gorokhov, and Tim Hugh, the tenor Daniel Norman, and violinist Hideko Udagawa. He performs regularly in venues across the UK as a Live Music Now! Fellowship Artist, and has also given recitals in Sweden, Norway, France, Italy and Austria.

The church of St Margaret Pattens was first established over 900 years ago. The present building was built by Sir Christopher Wren between 1684 and 1687 to replace an earlier Tudor building that was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666.

Wheelchair access is available via the pedestrianized street running along the north side of the church. The nearest tube stations are Monument, Bank and Tower Hill.
