Mayor, BC. Here is some of the review by New York Concert Review Inc. on her performance.

‘Rachmaninoff’s Preludes Op. 32. We heard No. 10 in B minor and No. 12 in G-sharp

minor, both beautifully played and highlights of the evening. Ms. Lee gave the B minor

Prelude the perfect feeling of solemnity, and one relished each moment of the glorious

build. Moving on to the G-sharp minor Prelude, she played with crystalline clarity in the

right-hand patterns, and a penetrating tone in the left-hand melody. Here one heard the

command and artistic liberty which can take an audience on a truly memorable journey.

These pieces fit the pianist like a glove. Ms. Lee closed her program with

Liszt’s Réminiscences de Norma (Bellini) by Franz Liszt, a virtuoso tour de force.

...etc..Ms. Lee came so close to conveying these qualities that one can only hope that she

will continue to play the piece for years to come. It will surely become a signature

triumph. Meanwhile, it was certainly a high voltage ending to what was an excellent

introduction to this New York audience.’
