“With a fluid technique and good musical instincts, Nathan Lee gave lively, articulate accounts of Bach and Mozart, showed a flair for jazz with the 20th-century composer Nikolai Kapustin, and tossed off the virtuosic challenges of Grünfeld’s concert paraphrase of Die Fledermaus” – THE NEW YORK TIMES
Nathan Lee began playing the piano at the age of six and made his orchestral debut at the age of nine.
At the age of 15, Nathan Lee won First Prize in the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, as well as 14 special prizes. Recent engagements this season include his Kennedy Center debut on the 39th Young Concert Artists Series in Washington, D.C.
