Warren Lee celebrates artistry of Leonard Bernstein

Hong Kong pianist Warren Lee performed in a solo piano recital at Carnegie Hall April 2, celebrating the artistry and 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birthday. The evening featured a selection of Bernstein’s Anniversaries with readings of personal letters of the maestro, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and the Liszt Sonata in B Minor. A Steinway artist, Lee graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and Yale School of Music, from which he received the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award.

Performing since the age of 6, Lee shared his journey in music, and how he was inspired by Leonard Bernstein to become a concert pianist and music educator at a press conference in New York (March 29). “Music chose me at a young age,” he said, adding that he enjoyed the challenges and opportunities music has given him.

Welcoming Lee back to New York, Acting Director of HKETONY Michael Kwan said the office welcomed more opportunities to showcase Hong Kong music talents and foster closer cultural ties between Hong Kong and the US. Mr Kwan also noted that Hong Kong, as a cultural hub in Asia, has a vibrant arts and cultural scene with a wide spectrum of activities and events.
