About This Performance

It seems like only yesterday that Hanchien Lee made her debut with PCMS that resulted in a standing ovation from the entire audience. In reality, it was nearly a decade ago. Since 2008 Ms. Lee has performed in prestigious venues throughout the US, in Europe, and across Asia with great success. Praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a pianist whose playing is “warmly charismatic” and which blends “calm maturity with naturalness,” Lee concludes her program with Schumann’s magnificent Faschingsschwank aus Wien. Translated as Carnival Jest from Vienna, the piece is a tribute to Mardi Gras: revelry that includes music, drama, mime, masquerade, and dance.
