This month, Seulki Lee (DMA ’19) participates in the 2018 Lucerne Festival Academy in Switzerland, where she will have the opportunity to collaborate with Sir Simon Rattle, Duncan Ward and Peter Eötvös, the world premiere of whose new composition commissioned by the Roche Commissions will be performed by the Orchestra of the Lucerne Festival Academy. She will work with such artists as the percussionist and composer-in-residence Fritz Hauser and the pianists Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich. And in addition to key works of Modernism by György Kurtág, Luigi Nono, and Bernd Alois Zimmermann, she will focus intensively on the creative legacy of Karlheinz Stockhausen, who would have celebrated his 90th birthday in 2018, through performances of such important scores as Gruppen and Inori. At the end of the program, with the Academy Orchestra, Seulki will travel beyond Lucerne to tour Hamburg, Berlin, and Paris.
