Called "Korea's hottest violin prodigy," SooBeen Lee is making an early name for herself in Boston and around the world. Now a pupil of the great Miriam Fried at the New England Conservatory, Lee began performing professionally before she turned ten. In addition to three towering works from the repertoire, she plays Bernstein's early Sonata, written while he was a student at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, but which premiered nearby in Cambridge with his Harvard classmate (and founder of the Juilliard Quartet), Raphael Hillyer.
