Anna Lee


The South Korean violinist was born in 1995 and as a very young child caused something of a sensation by making her orchestral debut with Paganini's Violin Concerto No 1 conducted by LanShui. At the age of six, she was admitted to Masao Kawasaki's class at the Juilliard School Pre-College Division. In 2013 she concluded her studies at Masao Kawasaki and Cho-Liang Lin.

After successfully participating in the Junior Division of the International Yehudi Menuhin Violin Competition in 2010, she won second prize in the Senior Division just two years later. In 2011 she was awarded the Prince of Hesse Prize and in 2013 the Mania and Bernhard Hahnloser Prize for Violin at the Verbier Festival Academy.

Anna Lee can already look back on solo performances with renowned orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Park Avenue Chamber Orchestra and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. She has played in major concert halls such as Carnegie Hall and Wigmore Hall. For some time, the young artist has also been attracting attention as a conductor. In 2010 she made her debut with the Peoria Symphony Orchestra and in 2011 with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

Anna Lee plays the ex-Tadolini/ex-Liszt Stradivari (Cremona 1706) which is on loan to her from the Rin Collection. 

In 2012 Anna Lee took part in Chamber Music Connects the World, where she played with Yuri Bashmet, Gidon Kremer and Steven Isserlis. In 2015 she took part in both the Violin Masterclassesand the Kronberg Academy Festival. 2016 she took part in the chamber music project Mit Musik-Miteinander as a tutor. Since 2014 she has been studying at Kronberg Academy with Ana Chumachenco. These studies are funded by the Yehudi Menuhin Stipendium.
