“Now here is a talent… who has as warm, silvery, and woody a tone as anyone could imagine with fast and keen finger work to match…amazing expressive capabilities…positively lovely. Lee’s breath imparts a certain glow to the radiance of her sound that is partly magic and partly a very precise approach to tone and volume.”– Review by Allmusic.com
About the album
EMBRACE (2011) is a fresh take on some of the most beautiful and heart-warming pieces of classical music. Reaching beyond the limits of the existing clarinet repertoire, these beautiful repertoire which were originally written for instruments such as the piano, strings, and voice, showcases the versatility and voice-like quality of the clarinet. Music has no boundaries and through ‘Embrace’ my hope is to liberate the clarinet from its traditional repertoire and to inspire music lovers to explore all different avenues that lead us to the magical pleasures that music brings into our everyday lives. Enjoy!
