The Lee Trio is an award-winning piano trio made up of three virtuosic performers, educators and sisters from San Francisco. Since its critically acclaimed Wigmore Hall debut in 2002, The Lee Trio’s “gripping immediacy and freshness” and “rich palette of tone colours” [The Strad] has inspired and moved audiences worldwide, establishing itself as one of the premier chamber ensembles on the international stage. In addition to performing, the Trio devotes time to teaching and giving masterclasses, and frequently collaborates with living composers, most recently finishing a recording project of Jane Antonia Cornish's piano trio, Duende, on the Delos Music label.
Master Class at 2pm is with the Young Chamber Musicians' Shadowhill Piano Trio.
