Closing the Wallace International Piano Festival is a recital by the winner of the inaugural Wallace National Junior Piano Competition in 2014 - Auckland pianist Delvan Lin. Official Prize-Giving for this year's Wallace National Junior Piano Competition will follow.

Delvan Lin is 17 years old, and is currently a first-year student at the University of Auckland. He began piano lessons at the age of six and studies with Dr Rae de Lisle. Delvan has participated in and won many piano competitions since the age of 8. His first major victory was the APPA solo music competition, which gave him an opportunity to perform in Auckland Town Hall.

Other notable achievements include winning first prizes from the IRMT (Institute of Registered Music Teachers) Auckland Branch Scholarships Competitions since 2011, four North Shore Performing Arts Competitions Society first prizes for solo performance and another first prize for the NSPACS Piano Concerto Competition in 2012. In same year, Delvan became the youngest winner of the Rönisch Secondary School Piano Competition, at the competition’s minimum age of 13.

Delvan was the winner of the Wallace National Junior Piano Competition in July 2014 and just a year later, at the age of 16, he went on to become the youngest winner of the Wallace National Piano Competition. Also involved in chamber music, Delvan has won the National Secondary Schools Chamber Music Competitions twice in 2013 and 2014, and his second winning trio ‘L’arc en Ciel’ has enjoyed numerous performances around Auckland.

Delvan was invited to perform Grieg’s Piano concerto in A minor with APO Summer School Orchestra in January 2015, and with the same piece he won the concerto competition held by the Curtis Institute of Music’s Young Artist Summer Programme in Philadelphia, USA. This year, Delvan has been invited to perform Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini with the Manukau Symphony Orchestra and Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor with the Bach Musica in August.
