In 2018, Taiwanese-American violinist Richard Lin won the 10th Quadrennial International Violin Competition of Indianapolis at the age of 27. As the competition's most recent Gold Medalist, he will perform his recital debut at the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on Friday, June 24, 2022 at 8:00 p.m.

Originally scheduled for the summer of 2020, the event was twice delayed due to the pandemic. Lin and IVCI Competition pianist Thomas Hoppe will perform Vitali’s Chaconne, the violin sonatas of Richard Strauss and John Corigliano, and Frolov’s Concert Fantasy on Themes from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess — which will be recorded for release in Spring 2023.

In 2021, he joined the faculty of the National Taipei University of Education, in Taipei, Taiwan.
