Music Millennium

Following the much-acclaimed duo album recorded with her husband Jeremy Menuhin, the pianist Mookie Lee-Menuhin is now presenting her debut GENUIN release as a soloist. The musician has put together a subtle programme which is characterized by numerous cross-references: Berg's early sonata op. 1, Schubert's extroverted Sonata in D Major, the Romanian Folk Dances by Béla Bartok, and the world premiere recording of Éric Tanguy's Toccata (2006). The works describe dealing with the past and traditions - and the break with these. Mookie Lee-Menuhin presents all this with a sophisticated sound and a gorgeous pianistic touch - a real success! Born in Seoul, South Korea, Mookie Lee-Menuhin has performed throughout mainland Europe and in Scandinavia, Great Britain and Asia, both as a soloist and chamber musician. She has appeared in some of the major halls in Europe and Asia, including Geneva's Victoria Hall, the Tonhalle Zurich, and Bern Casino in Switzerland. In 2003 Mookie received the prestigious Augustinus Award and the Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra's International Prize, as well as winning the Yamaha competition in 2002.
