Period violinist Daniel S. Lee enjoys a varied career as a soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and teacher.
Praised for his “ravishing vehemence” ("New York Times"), he has appeared as a soloist and guest concertmaster with the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, American Baroque Orchestra, Baroque Orchestra of Maine, Quodlibet Ensemble, San Francisco Bach Choir, and Yale Collegium Players. He also regularly collaborates with TENET.
He recently won the Audience Prize at the 2012 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition with his ensemble, Sebastian Chamber Players (www.sebastians.org), whose performance at the finals of 2011 York Early Music International Competition was praised for its “smooth sophistication” ("Yorkshire Post") and “well-thought-out articulation and phrasing” ("Early Music Review").
As a violino piccolo specialist, he frequently appears as a soloist in Bach’s first Brandenburg Concerto and cantata 140, and has given the modern-day premiere of Johann Pfeiffer’s concerto.
He is an instructor on the violin, viola and chamber music at Connecticut College.
