Lee Jae Phang is a Malaysian concert pianist. Known for performances that combine virtuosity, expressiveness, and searching intellect, he has performed in concerts across the UK, in Germany, Austria, Italy, and China to critical acclaim.
Alan Stockbridge, Chairman of the Church Stretton Arts Festival, wrote ‘Lee Jae Phang provided a solo piano performance that demonstrated his great ability to play a wide variety of repertoire with great interpretation and passion. His dexterity in Tippett’s third piano sonata, which he informed us has an average of 89 notes to the bar, was simply amazing.’
Since the advent of Covid-19, Lee Jae has been engaged in a deep study of Beethoven's 32 Piano Sonatas, one of the most important collections of works in the history of music and widely regarded as the Everest of piano-playing.
Hans von Bülow, who famously called them 'The New Testament' of the piano literature, was the first person in history to perform them all in a single concert cycle, setting a precedent for future generations of pianists.
