"The multiple international prize winner Trey Lee finessed all the intricate nuances of [Haydn Cello Concerto] superbly, and the spectacular precision of his left hand held the entire concert hall's audience in rapt attention."
"Playing with the orchestra's refined accompaniment, Lee fully expressed his well-known elegant and musical style. The second movement's melodic singing style was particularly outstanding, and the third movement's Allegro Molto was taken at a brisk tempo--the rhythm was sharp and focused, while the orchestra was flawlessly matched with the soloist."

"The Haydn Cello Concerto...had a marvelous protagonist in Trey Lee, a superb cellist. When I heard the 'bravos' extended to him, I thought they were well-earned indeed."
