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.
