If you missed Ensemble 212's Season Finale back in June, here is the World Premiere performance of Yoon Jae Lee's transcription of the Mendelssohn Overture in C Major, Op. 24 for FULL orchestra.

Felix Mendelssohn originally wrote this piece for an 11-piece Harmonie band in 1824 titled "Notturno." He later revised and expanded it for a full wind ensemble in 1838 and published as an overture. This transcription was made earlier this year. Enjoy!

I'm happy to announce that my reduction of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker for chamber ensemble is finally officially published! There is already one group in Portland doing it this season and am hoping to get a few more in this holiday season! Please feel free to share to any groups, companies that might be interested. Thank you!

Every year, adjudicating Ensemble 212's Young Artist Competition is so tough. We had so many wonderful performers it was hard to choose. In the end, violinist Daniel Seog and cellist Charles Zandieh were selected. I will be collaborating with the 2 winners on Saturday June 2.
We are thrilled to announce our 2017-18 Young Artist Competition Winners.

Our Grand Prize Winner Daniel Seog, 17, will perform the 1st mvt. of the Sibelius Violin Concerto.

Cellist Charles Zandieh, 16, is our 2nd Prize winner and will perform the 1st mvt. of the Haydn Cello Concerto No. 2 in D Major.

It was a really tough decision as always as we had so many wonderful applicants. Honorable mention goes to Enako Matsumoto, Violin 15, and Iris Sung, Violin 12. Congratulations to all those who participated.

I am working to promote my Mahler Chamber Project by going over some videos of my performances of Mahler Symphonies with Ensemble 212. Here is the 1st movement of Symphony No. 1 which I performed in November 2014.

If you know any conductors / chamber orchestras who would be interested in performing Mahler with a chamber orchestra of about 40 players (and not a chamber ensemble of 15), please let them know about my project! Performance materials for Symphonies 1 and 4 are available through Ondine Press. Enjoy!

Limited number of $8 promotional tickets for Ensemble 212's Season Finale available! http://yacshowcase.bpt.me

Enter code: OCTET4ORCH

Every season finale is an exciting celebration but this one is particularly special. Three outstanding young violinists, Sarah Ma, David Kwak, and Nathan Meltzer (age 14,15, and 17) will perform Chausson Poeme, the finale of Saint-Saens' Violin Concerto No. 3 and the finale of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto.

We are also performing two of my Mendelssohn orchestral transcriptions of works written when he was just 15 and 16! One is a piece originally written for winds and the octet originally written for eight string players.

This will only be the second time both Mendelssohn transcriptions are being performed in New York so don't miss this unique, one of a kind concert this Saturday at 8 PM!
