Cello recital by Trey Lee

Hailed a “mir­a­cle” by Gramo­phone mag­a­zine, Hong Kong-born cel­list Trey Lee col­lab­o­rates with artists and or­ches­tras such Maazel, Ashke­nazy, Bash­met, Si­naisky, Mikko Franck, Phil­har­mo­nia Lon­don, Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra Ra­dio France, Mu­nich Cham­ber Or­ches­tra, among oth­ers. His con­certo de­but at Carnegie Hall won him a stand­ing ova­tion, with The New York Times declar­ing him “the ex­cel­lent cel­list… with en­velop­ing rich­ness and lyri­cal sen­si­tiv­ity.” He is of­ten fea­tured at ma­jor events around the world such as the launch of The Imag­ine Project to cel­e­brate the 25th an­niver­sary of the UN Con­ven­tion on the Rights of the Child with Hugh Jack­man, Yoko Ono. Be­sides his mu­si­cal stud­ies in Amer­ica and Europe, Lee also re­ceived his Bach­e­lor’s De­gree in Eco­nom­ics from Har­vard Univer­sity. He has founded two mu­sic fes­ti­vals in Asia: the Mu­si­cus Fest and Hong Kong In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. An ad­vo­cate of Chi­nese mu­sic and cul­ture, Lee is Artis­tic Di­rec­tor of Mu­si­cus So­ci­ety, which aims to pro­mote Chi­nese cul­ture in­ter­na­tion­ally and through cross-cul­tural col­lab­o­ra­tion. Over the course of his ca­reer the pi­anist Oliver Triendl has earned a rep­u­ta­tion as a highly ver­sa­tile per­form­ing artist. Some 100 CD record­ings attest to his work as an ad­vo­cate of rarely per­formed reper­toire from the classical and ro­man­tic eras as well as to his com­mit­ment to con­tem­po­rary works. As a soloist Triendl has per­formed to­gether with many renowned or­ches­tras. Date: Novem­ber 30, Thurs­day, 7:45 pm

Vi­o­lin recital by Itzhak Perl­man

Un­de­ni­ably the reign­ing vir­tu­oso of the vi­o­lin, Itzhak Perl­man en­joys su­per­star sta­tus rarely af­forded to classical mu­si­cians. Beloved for his charm and hu­man­ity as well as his tal­ent, Perl­man and his mu­sic are trea­sured by au­di­ences through­out the world, who re­spond not only to his re­mark­able artistry, but also his ir­re­press­ible joy of mak­ing mu­sic. In 2009, Perl­man was hon­ored to take part in the In­au­gu­ra­tion of Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, pre­mier­ing a piece spe­cially writ­ten for the oc­ca­sion by John Wil­liams and per­formed along with clar­inetist An­thony McGill, pi­anist Gabriela Mon­tero and cel­list Yo-Yo Ma. Born in Is­rael in 1945, Perl­man com­pleted his ini­tial train­ing at the Academy of Mu­sic in Tel Aviv. He came to New York and soon was pro­pelled into the in­ter­na­tional arena with an ap­pear­ance on the Ed Sul­li­van Show in 1958. Fol­low­ing his stud­ies at the Juil­liard School with Ivan Galamian and Dorothy De­Lay, Perl­man won the pres­ti­gious Leven­tritt Com­pe­ti­tion in 1964, which led to a bur­geon­ing world­wide ca­reer. Since then, Perl­man has ap­peared with ev­ery ma­jor or­ches­tra and in recitals and fes­ti­vals around the world. Perl­man is also a fre­quent pres­ence on the con­duc­tor’s podium. He has per­formed as con­duc­tor with the New York Phil­har­monic, Chicago Sym­phony, Philadel­phia Or­ches­tra, Bos­ton Sym­phony, Na­tional Sym­phony, Los An­ge­les Phil­har­monic, St. Paul Cham­ber Or­ches­tra and the sym­phony or­ches­tras of San Fran­cisco, Dal­las, Hous­ton as well as at the Ravinia.
