Kreisleriana, one of Schumann's most famous and beautiful works, was composed in 1838. The name of the work comes from conductor Johannes Kreisler, a character from the works of E.T.A. Hoffmann. Schumann was greatly attracted by Kreisler's brilliant though paradoxical personality. In the eight pieces of this grand cycle with their dramatic contrasts (sometimes recalling characters of Florestan and Eusebius), like in many other works, Schumann is like a novelist, embodying the subtle nuances and shades of the man's mood, human passions and dreams. Kreisleriana is dedicated to Frederic Chopin. Dramatic contrasts are also characteristic for Fantasiestucke, op. 12 (1837). Des Abends (Evening), full of dreaminess, an embodiment of the languid side of Schumann's personality is followed by the agitated Aufschwung (Soaring) - Florestan appears on stage. Warum? (Why?) is a kind of philosophic meditation filled with tenderness - Eusebius comes into light again. Grillen (Whims) is full of humor. In der Nacht (In the night) is a mysterious and dramatic picture of the night, with a beautiful lyrical theme in the middle section. The piece was inspired by the legend about Hero and Leander. It is followed by a colorful Fabel (Fable), full of humor and bright contrasts. Traumeswirren (Dreamtwine) resembles a fantastic dance, gracious and elegant. Ende vom Lied (The end of the song) starts like a majestic march; a beautiful coda, profound and meditative yet emotional, becomes a kind of a "summing up" and concludes the whole cycle. Hyekyung Lee, born in Wonju, Korea in 1959 began to play piano at the age of 6. After winning several national music competitions, she had her first public concert with Seoul Sinfonietta Orchestra in 1970, and 4 years later became the soloist for the foundation concert of Korea Jeunesse Musicale Orchestra. Entering Folkwang Music College in Essen, Germany in 1975, she subsequently won the DAAD German government scholarship, the Folkwang Prize Competition and the nationwide German Music College Union Competition. Transferring to Muenchen Music College, she graduated with top marks in 1981. During 2 years of graduate school, she gave recitals, performed for various radio programs and earned the Bach Prize at Vianna da Motta International Competition in Lisbon. In 1984, Miss Lee returned home to teach at Chung-Ang University as a professor. Today, Hyekyung Lee is recognized as one of Korea’s outstanding musicians with her wide concert repertoires from baroque to contemporary. In 1984 she received the 'Critic's Prize' from the Korea Music Pen Club. In 1988 she was selected as 'Musician of the Year' by Dong-A music magazine. In 1993 she received the 'Korea Music Award' from the Korea Music Society. In 2004 she received the 'Seoul Music Prize' from the Korea Music Critic Association. Hyekyung Lee has performed at Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center in USA, in Sydney, Vienna, Moscow, Tokyo, Manila and with the Ulster Orchestra in Northern Ireland. In Korea she plays regularly with the Korea Philharmonic Orchestra and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. She has also performed chamber music with the Colorado String Quartet, the New Budapest String Quartet, flautists Patrick Galloy and Maxence Larrieu, trumpeter Stephen Burns, Korea’s top violinist Dong-Suk Kang and the Korean traditional drum quartet Samulnori, among many others. Miss Lee's career has also brought her in contact with many fine conductors, including Vakhtang Jordania, Bernhard Gueller, Barry Wordsworth, Sandro Suturello and Yan Pascal Tortelier.
