Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, and Crumb] highlighted her powerful technique and musical poise.

Her fingers seem to have little magnets that guide them to the right spots on the fingerboard

every time, and her accuracy and control of double

stops in the Stravinsky and Crumb were

amazing...In lyrical passages, Lee is more of a jeweler than an architect. She responds naturally

to the ebb and flow of the music, and offers original ideas. Her bow arm can float lovely

pianissimos and launch heavy artillery.”
