Camerata Pacifica burns with talent

Adrian Spence’s Camerata Pacifica, which is celebrating its 33rd season, put on a doozy of a show at the Music Academy’s Hahn Hall.

Yura Lee, a member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, mesmerized on both violin and viola with her frenzied renditions of Kodály’s “Sonata for Solo Cello in B Minor,” specially arranged for Lee’s viola, and Biber’s “Passacaglia in G Minor for Solo Violin.”

Wrapping the hugely entertaining show was a duet of Chopin’s “Cello Sonata in G Minor” with Korean-American Soyeon Kate Lee on piano and Avery Fisher Career Grant winner Jonathan Swensen on cello.

The tony triumvirate can’t come back soon enough…
