The last high-school-age pianist we discovered for our series was a kid named Lang Lang, and you know how he turned out. This season, we present Nathan Lee, who at age 15 won first prize in the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, as well as 14 special prizes. Since then, he has performed with the Seattle Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra, and has debuted at the Kennedy Center. In its review of that concert, the Washington Post noted, “Lee is immensely self-assured, his relaxed demeanor at the piano due no doubt to the ample technical resources at his disposal. His playing is virtually note-perfect.”
