Fabulous Lee Trio returns to Oakmont


Oakmont Berger Center

Wednesday January 11th 2017 - 1:30pm to

Following their impressive debut in Oakmont two years ago, the acclaimed Lee Piano Trio returns on Thursday, Jan. 11, at 1:30 p.m. in Berger Center. For this concert, the Trio has chosen two chamber works: Beethoven’s Trio No. 5 in D Major, Op. 70 No. 1 (“Ghost”) and Dvorak’s Trio No. 4 in E Minor, Op. 90 (“Dumky”). These two masterpieces demonstrate both composers breaking away from tradition and creating new sound worlds, while highlighting the magnitude of the human spirit.

The trio’s members include violinist Lisa Lee, cellist Angela Lee and pianist Melinda Lee Masur, three virtuosic performers, educators and sisters from San Francisco. Since their critically praised Wigmore Hall (London) debut in 2002, the Lee Trio’s “gripping immediacy and freshness” and “rich palette of tone colours” (Strad magazine) have inspired and moved audiences worldwide, establishing the group as one of the premier chamber ensembles on the international stage.

The members of the Trio are graduates of the Curtis Institute, the Juilliard School, Yale, Harvard, the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hannover. Lisa Lee plays on an 1872 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin, Angela Lee performs on a 1762 Nicolo Gagliano cello; and Melinda Lee Masur is a Steinway Artist.
