Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Duende, drawing its name from the Frederico Garcia Lorca collection of prose, is a 4- movement, 16-minute piano trio that grabbed my attention immediately and never let go. I am especially moved by II ('Penseroso'), which reminds me of Arvo PSrt's haunting Fratres. Violin and cello open with a rich and sonorous chord progression that conjures images of long-ago momentous events. Lovely playing by the Lee Trio. The 3-movement, 10-minute In Luce is given a committed reading by violinists Alyssa Park and Kathleen Sloan, violist Brett Banducci, and cellist Vanessa Freebairn- Smith. Violinist Miranda Cuckson and pianist Blair McMillen are the superb performers in the 3-movement, 20-minute Clair-Obsur.

World premiere recordings of three chamber works by rising English composer Jane Antonia Cornish - Music of powerful extremes, evoking archetypal themes of light and darkness. - Superb performances from the Lee Trio, as well as a roster of top-notch solo and chamber musicians.
