Ran Dank & Soyeon Kate Lee, piano four-hands

Pianist Ran Dank deploys his brilliant technique with astonishing energy, intellect, and intensity, captivating audiences and critics alike. In the past season of New York concerts alone, he was presented at Merkin Hall, performed Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 2 with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Alice Tully Hall, and won critical acclaim for his “vivacious playing” (The New York Times) of the Tobias Picker Concerto at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre and for his performance of Ravel’s piano trio at the Chelsea Music Festival for “the sweep and fire of his playing” (The New York Times).
