Thursday, November 14th from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Join us for an evening of timeless music for solo cello by J.S. Bach, performed by St. Louis Symphony Orchestra principal cellist, Daniel Lee. Beloved for their countless dimensions and moods, Bach’s cello suites explore concise mathematical harmonic structures while embodying the spiritual transcendence of virtuosic brilliance. Though long neglected after Bach’s death, the suites were brought forth into the mainstream repertoire by Catalan cellist, Pablo Casals, and have since taken their rightful place at the pinnacle of all Western musical tradition.
Korean-American cellist Daniel Lee continues to gain recognition as one of his generation’s most significant artists. A native of Seattle, Lee started playing the cello at the age of six. In 1994, at the age of 14, he signed an exclusive recording contract with Decca Records. In 2001, at the age of 21, he received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, just one of many awards and competitions that he’s won during his career. Lee was also named one of the 2011 “40 under 40” by the St. Louis Business Journal.
