About the Artists
Mayumi Kanagawa (1994) is a Berlin based, Japanese-American violinist known for her rich, dark sound and focused, engaging musicality. Recipient of the fourth prize at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and second prize and best concerto prize at the 2018 Long-Thibaud Crespin competition in Paris, Mayumi has soloed with many orchestras including the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Orchestra, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Belgian National Orchestra, among others. This season she will debut with the Yomiuri Nippon Orchestra in Tokyo as well as at Wigmore Hall in London.
Chamber music and outreach programs have brought Mayumi to the Trans-Siberian festival, Verbier festival, Chanel Pygmalion chamber music series in Japan, and TONALi tours throughout Germany.
Mayumi’s musical education has been shaped by great musicians and pedagogues including Kolja Blacher, Yoshiko Nakura, Masao Kawasaki, and Robert Lipsett.
She currently performs on a Petrus Guarnerius (Mantua, late 17th century) violin, on generous loan from the Deutsche Musikinstrumentenfond of the Deutsch Stiftung Musikleben.
Pianist Lee Dionne holds passion, imagination and play at the core of his art. His performances seek to combine an essential freedom of elocution with an underlying depth of understanding, and his repertoire spans the Renaissance to the 21st-century. Lee cultivates a particular interest in creating performances that help audiences form personally relevant connections with music. Experiences in this area have ranged from performance-based conversations at conferences and universities, to interactive performances at elementary schools and community centers.
Lee has performed at Carnegie Hall, NEC’s Jordan Hall, the Kennedy Center, Paul Hall at the Juilliard School, and at the Philharmonie and Conservatoire Nationale Supérieure in Paris. As a soloist Lee recently made his debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and at the Philharmonic in Bratislava.
Lee holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from Yale School of Music. His teachers and mentors have included Vivian Weilerstein, Don Weilerstein, Merry Peckham, Mark Steinberg, Boris Berman, Matti Raekallio, Wei-yi Yang, Patricia Zander, Wilma Machover, Michael Friedmann, Paul Berry, and Arthur Haas.
