A Picture of French Impressionistic Music
The Lee/Minkstimas Duo explores the language and diversity of French Music in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Often closely linked to Impressionism in painting, these works of Fauré, Chausson, Debussy, and Ravel are a comprehensive look at the beautiful transition from Romanticism to the Modern world of music.
Described as “breathtakingly beautiful” by The New York Times, violinist Sean Lee and pianist Edvinas Minkstimas performed together at the New York Historical Society, le Poisson Rouge, Hewlett-Woodmere Library, and the Juilliard School’s Paul Hall and Morse Hall during their first season together as a duo. For the 2010/11 Season, the Lee/Minkstimas Duo continues to perform together, often programming solo works and duo works in the same program to formulate thematic programs full of variety.
