Wayne Lee 李家瑋, pianist
Wayne Lee, a violinist originally from San Francisco, is an active chamber musician. Since 2012, he has been a member of the Formosa Quartet, a Taiwanese-American ensemble that has won acclaim worldwide since winning First Prize at the London International String Quartet Competition. In addition to serving as ensemble-in-residence for The Art of Élan, a San Diego arts-presenting organization, and as faculty string quartet-in-residence for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, the members of the Formosa Quartet are founders and faculty members of the annual Formosa Chamber Music Festival in Hualien, Taiwan.
A member of the Manhattan Piano Trio since 2008, Mr. Lee has performed prolifically with the group throughout the United States as well as in Europe. They released their third album, a disc of Schumann and Chopin trios, for the Marquis Classics label in 2010. In recent years, his interest in historical performance has led to a growing duo partnership with fortepianist Mike Lee, with whom he has explored and performed music of Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, Brahms, and Bach on early instruments. He graduated from The Juilliard School with bachelor and master of music degrees, and currently lives in New York City.
