“Having grown up in very different and sometimes conflicting cultures, music has always been the bridge that connects the different phases and places in my life. In this first album, I wanted to reflect on my personal and musical journey. Arirang is a famous Korean folk song that describes the pain and loss of a lost love. Baek has taken this simple song and turned it into a virtuoso and melismatic saga of self-discovery. The expressive and hopeful voice of the young Barber in his Cello Sonata captures the spirit of the American dream, the blind trust that anything is possible. I connect the rhythmic complexity of Carter’s Sonata, written a decade later, to another intersection in my ongoing but fluctuating journey. The fluidity of time, bursts of energy and rhythmic vivacity are some of the most apparent characteristics of this piece. Finally, Henry and I chose to record the rarely performed Ysaÿe Meditation and songs by Jacques Brel to show our gratitude to Belgium. We both received warmth and support there, and it is the place where our collaboration was born. I hope that this album will become an emblem of the coming together of different cultures and paths. “- Christine J. Lee


Mozart Double Concerti K. 365, K. 505 & K. ANH. 56/315F

Over the course of the past decade, the Biel Solothurn Symphony Orchestra and the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel have promoted, in Switzerland and Belgium, musical knowledge transmission of the highest order through several artistic projects involving the orchestra, its conductor Kaspar Zehnder, the masters in residence at the Music Chapel and some of the Music Chapel’s young talents. This partnership gave rise to the ambitious idea to program Mozart’s double concertos, with the particularity of bringing together established artists – such as Frank Braley and Louis Lortie – with emerging talents – such as Victoria Vassilenko, Iris van Wijnen and Vladyslava Luchenko.
Mozart’s complete double concertos were performed in concert on 20 March 2019 and 11 March 2020 at the Palais des Congrès of Biel. The concerto for two pianos (K. 365), the concerto for piano and violin (K. Anh. 56/315f) and the ’aria Ch’io mi di scordi di te? (K. 505) were recorded during these two concerts and today constitute the recorded trace of this ambitious project.
