Violinist Sean Lee has captured the attention of audiences worldwide with his lively performances of the classics. A recipient of the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, his debut album, released by EMI Classics, reached the iTunes top 20 classical bestsellers list. In addition, his educational YouTube series, Paganini POV, continues to draw praise for the use of technology in sharing unique perspectives and insight into violin playing.
Lee has appeared as a soloist with orchestras including the Jerusalem Symphony, Utah Symphony, Orchestra Del Teatro Carlo Felice, Westchester Symphony, and Israel Camerata Jerusalem. His recital appearances have taken him to Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Festival di Carro Paganiniano of Italy, Vienna’s Konzerthaus, and Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium. A top prizewinner at the “Premio Paganini” International Violin Competition, Lee embraces the legacy of his late mentor, violinist Ruggiero Ricci, by being one of the few violinists who dare to perform the complete 24 Caprices of Niccolò Paganini in recital.
Lee has collaborated in performances with Itzhak Perlman, James Galway, Deborah Voigt, and members of the Emerson and Guarneri String Quartets. As an artist with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Lee performs regularly at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall as well as on tour internationally. Recent appearances on tour with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center include Lobkowicz Palace in Prague, Czech Republic; LG Arts Center in Seoul, Korea; National Theater in Taipei, Taiwan; and Naumburg Orchestral Concerts in New York City’s Central Park...
