Description: Korean-American violinist Kristin Lee has been praised by The Strad for her "rare stylistic aptness" and "mastery of tone and rare mood in a performer of any age." A violinist of remarkable versatility and impeccable technique, Ms. Lee is a winner of Astral Artists' 2010 National Auditions and a top prizewinner of the 2012 Walter W. Naumburg Competition. An accomplished chamber musician, Ms. Lee is a member of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, following her completion of a three-year residency as a CMS Two artist. The pairing of Richard Strauss's Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op. 18 with Charles Ives's Sonata No. 4 for Violin and Piano shows the evolution of a sonata from the peak of Romanticism into the 20th century, when the rules were often turned upside down.
Venue Description: Located at Kaufman Music Center, Merkin Concert Hall hosts music and theatre events, including the series Broadway Close Up, and more. Its innovative programming, intimate scale and near perfect acoustics have earned it a reputation as one of New York City's finest concert venues.
