REVIEW! THE CLARINET Magazine / September 2018 Issue

Saturday, September 01, 2018

"This recording is a series of beautiful works in which the star recordings are not the standards of the repertoire, but the more modern original works that are sure to be a delight to clarinetists looking for something new to perform. Lee's approach to the clarinet is unique and uncompromising, and her love for lyricism and romanticism is clear."  Amanda McCandless

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

"Last night, Seunghee Lee opened Charles R. Hale’s 2018 series “Thoroughly New York.” She was an unequivocal success.... I’d never experienced a classically trained musician of Seunghee Lee’s talent, combine superior musicality and riveting storytelling. A novel concept, superbly crafted.  It was an exceptional evening..." Review by Vincent Nauheimer

REVIEW! AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE May/June 2018 Issue

Sunday, May 20, 2018

Lee also offers some tuneful contemporary contributions, namely ‘Executive’ by Italian composer Michele Mangani, ‘Romance’ by Danish composer Bent Sorensen, ‘Coming Home’ by American composer Augusta Gross, and the Suite from The Victorian Kitchen Garden by the late British composer Paul Reade. The concert is well played. Lee has a pleasant, woody sound, expressive phrasing, and reliable fingers and articulation, and Gislinge adds great skill, clarity, and sensitivity… American Record Guide – May/June 2018, p.182

CLARINET MAGAZINE FEATURE REVIEW

Thursday, June 01, 2017

"Lee performs each work with the utmost sensitivity and musical conviction....Her activities as a recording artist have gained her critical acclaim in the pages of this publication and Fanfare, as well as consistently high rankings by classical radio stations on a global scale. Lee’s true passions lie in using the power of music to shed light on humanitarian issues and inspire philanthropy to counter them, which motivated her to found the recital series Concert for Cause...."

DELIGHT OF THE WEEK_WSCL RADIO

Friday, March 04, 2016

"My Delight of the Week!  One of the difficult pleasures of my job is having to listen to many, many new releases, and then choosing a delight from amongst a selection of wonderful and often incredibly varied CDs.  Seunghee Lee is an artist whose work I simply enjoy.  She simply gets out of the way and makes beautiful music for us (amply aided by pianist Evan Solomon).  Her previous CD has been a staple of our playlist, and this CD, with a continuation of well-loved, "timeless classic" works is simply more of the same, in the best possible way.  While many of our listeners enjoy a challenge from time to time, the majority of our listeners simply want to hear and enjoy beautiful music.  Here it is - again!"

SOLACE-HEALING THROUGH MUSIC

Monday, March 28, 2016

"When tragedy strikes our lives, time doesn’t heal wounds. Words of condolence are not enough to alleviate the painful heart, but once we start surrendering our wounded hearts to the magical beauty of music, we may just be able to find solace from within…Structured around 5 stages of grieving (Denial, Depression, Anger, Bargaining, Acceptance), SOLACE is a personal musical healing project I created to pay tribute to my father, whose life was taken away in a senseless gun violence on the south side of Chicago. May the power of music bring us comfort and healing and enable us to seek compassion, forgiveness, appreciation, and love for one another. Let's spread MUSIC and LOVE, not bullets and hatred, and make this world a better place..."

REVIEW: CLARINET MAGAZINE (SEPT. ISSUE 2016)

Sunday, October 02, 2016

1989 ICA Young Artist Competition winner Seunghee Lee has made a name for herself transcribing and recording operatic and orchestral works for clarinet and piano. Her 2014 CD Hidden Treasures was the third in her series. With encouragement from her former Yale professor David Shifrin, and the desire to help young clarinetists develop the vocal side of their playing, Lee has produced a combination set of the Hidden Treasures CD and the sheet music of the selections....CLICK TO READ MORE

AUDIOPHILE AUDITION CLASSICAL CD REVIEW

Saturday, July 02, 2016

"Lovely and mostly rewarding collection of “easy listening” clarinet....Korean born Seunghee Lee is a very refined and talented artist with a pleasant tone and facile technique. There is much to admire in her playing and in looking at her training resume this is not a surprise. Lee grew up in Chicago and studied with many of the country’s great clarinetists including David Shifrin, Charles Neidich, George Silfies and John Bruce Yeh, to name but a few..."

FROM COMPETITION TO COMPASSION Competition to Compassion by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold

Monday, April 11, 2016

“I’ve gone from competitive to compassionate,” acclaimed clarinetist Seunghee Lee says simply.  When I was young it was all about winning competitions and pushing myself always to do better than I had done yesterday. I felt that I needed to prove again and again my musical abilities. And by doing that, I was getting in the way of the music and not letting it flow through me. By taking some time off, I was able to realize what it is I really want in life...."
