World Renowned Cellist


Praised by the late Lorin Maazel as “a marvelous protagonist… a superb cellist”, Trey Lee has been hailed a “Miracle” by Gramophone for his virtuosity that combines intellectual sophistication with emotional depth.

His concerto debut at Carnegie Hall won him a rousing standing ovation, with The New York Times declaring him “the excellent cellist… with enveloping richness and lyrical sensitivity.”

A co-founder and Artistic Director of Musicus Society HK, Lee established the groundbreaking Musicus Fest in 2013.

Since being appointed an ambassador of UNICEF Hong Kong in 2012, Lee has traveled on their behalf to promote children’s rights, and in 2014 was joined on stage at the United Nations General Assembly Hall by Yoko Ono, Hugh Jackman, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Angelique Kidjo among others to launch The IMAGINE Project.

In 2017, he performed for China’s President Xi Jinping at a live CCTV global broadcast to over 1 billion viewers at the 20th Anniversary Gala of Hong Kong’s return to China.


The pianist Oliver Triendl is an extremely versatile artist. About 100 CD recordings demonstrate his commitment to the unknown repertoire of the classical, romantic and contemporary music.

As a soloist he worked with renowned orchestras such as the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bamberger Symphoniker, Oliver Triendl – winner of several national and international competitions – was born in 1970 in Mallersdorf (Bavaria) and studied with Rainer Fuchs, Karl-Heinz Diehl, Eckart Besch, Gerhard Oppitz and Oleg Maisenberg.
