For this special one-off concert, Lee is joined by the Perth-based Sartory String Quartet, comprised of violinists Paul Wright and Pascale Whiting, violist Katherine Potter, and cellist Sophie Curtis.
The 19-year-old Chinese-Australian pianist Shuan Hern Lee has made waves ever since he was accepted as a tertiary music student at the University of Western Australia at just 14 years of age. The following years have only confirmed his star status, seeing him claim a number of international accolades that include placing first at the prestigious Chopin International Piano Competition.
As well as this, Perth audiences will recall that both Paul Wright and Sophie Curtis appeared in concert for Musica Viva Australia earlier this year, playing with real panache. That confidence will be on full display when the musicians unveil their interpretation of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No 2, the first concerto the composer ever wrote; Haydn’s String Quartet in C Op 20 No 2 with its sunny disposition; and for the finale, a solo performance with a poetic touch by Lee of Chopin’s Ballade No 4.
