Shannon Lee made her stunning orchestral debut at age 12 with the Dallas Symphony, and here her star continues to burn bright in a program that includes a fiery performance of Josef Szigeti's transcription of an Alexander Scriabin etude, Claude Debussy's lyrical Beau soir, Edward Elgar's tender Salut d'amour, Johannes Brahms's dramatic Sonatensatz, Heinrich Ernst's tense adaptation of Franz Schubert's Der Erlkönig, Frédéric Chopin's Nocturne in C-sharp Minor, and—always a crowd-pleaser—Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee. Perhaps the most pleasing of all, however, is Lee's heartfelt rendition of Tomaso Antonio Vitali's Chaconne in G Minor, a baroque masterpiece.

"Wieniawski's Scherzo-Tarantelle showcases surprising left-hand dexterity, a tone of searching depth yet not without grit and, in the singing middle section, subtle and ingenious command of portamentos. Fritz Kreisler's Tambourin chinois allows Lee to demonstrate a sharp rhythmic sense akin to the composer's…. Heifetz's transcription of Debussy's Beau soir provides an effective contrast in her performance, with seductive timbres and suggestive harmonies supporting her veiled melodic line…. In the choice of repertoire and in her manner of delivering it, it's clear that Lee has heard great violinists. That's specifically apparent in [Elgar's] Salut d'amour, in which her manner, with its dynamic and tempo changes and swooping portamentos, hearkens back to an era of salon music that many violinists have unfortunately disavowed; her always judicious and deeply affecting way with this piece should remind listeners of just how much has been lost…. Lee plays both very brilliantly and very engagingly…. Urgently recommended."—Fanfare
