Press quotes about the Lee Trio:

"The Lee Trio really inhabited every phrase, speaking with conviction and flair."

~ T h e S T R A D

"The Lee sisters used their suave sense of rubato to maximum effect.... Their polish and expressive capacity, in performing the works of such diverse composers, was amazing. Clearly, there was more at work than dexterity; there was brain power coupled with a keen integration of ensemble down to the smallest detail. I'd be hard put to remember any trio who played with such total commitment to the music."

~ S a n F r a n c i s c o C l a s s i c a l V o i c e

About the artists:

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] continue to move audiences and critics around the globe.

In recent seasons, the Trio has given recitals and masterclasses in cities from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, San Francisco, New York and Toronto to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Paris and Kiev. The Lee Trio has performed as soloist with orchestras such as the Shanghai Philharmonic, Kiev Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, Shenzhen Symphony and Macao Youth Symphony. The Lee Trio is passionate about working with and performing the music of living composers. As a recipient of InterMusic SF’s Musical Grant, The Lee Trio commissioned and premiered Nathaniel Stookey's Piano Trio No. 1. Other piano trios by celebrated composers including Uljas Pulkkis, Philip Laser, Laurence Rosenthal, Julian Yu and Sylvie Bodorova have been given their world, American and European premieres by The Lee Trio. Educating the next generation of musicians is integral to the Trio's mission. In addition to giving masterclasses at schools and universities at home and abroad, the Trio regularly performs outreach and concerts in areas where the arts have little or no exposure, partnering with organizations like BRAVO Youth Orchestras or Music Camp International. Each member of The Lee Trio is a recipient of the California State Assembly Recognition for Exemplary Service to the Community.

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

Vladimir Babeshko comes from the Tatar Kazan. From 2009 to 2018 Vladimir Babeshko was a scholarship holder of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation and a regular member of the soloist ensemble "Mutter's Virtuosi". With his mentor Anne-Sophie Mutter, Vladimir Babeshko has played concerts in Europe, Asia, USA and Canada.

Vladimir Babeshko's chamber music partners include Christoph Eschenbach, Gidon Kremer, Daniel Muller Schott, Gary Hoffman, Lynn Harrell, Lambert Orkis, Ksenia Bashmet and the Henschel Quartet.

In November 2017, Vladimir Babeshko was heard along with Anne-Sophie Mutter and Daniel Müller-Schott as a string trio in the Berlin Konzerthaus. Since September 2018 he is 1st coordinating solo violist of the Belgian National Orchestra in Brussels.

Vladimir Babeshko plays on a viola by Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume from the year 1870, which is provided to him by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation as a long-term loan.
