Hope Lee is a Canadian composer
of Chinese origin.
As a "cross-cultural explorer", her work often
reflects her interdisciplinary interests and her
views of creativity as an endless adventure of
exploration, research and experimentation; a
challenge to one's breadth and depth.
'Things change constantly and continuously'
she says, 'therefore each work should be
approached from a fresh angle. Growth is a
natural phenomenon reflected in my
compositional technique. Not unlike
disciplined organic growth - a most
fascinating phenomenon - it is the secret of
life, the source of true freedom.'
"Ms. Lee's music is as thought-provoking and richly imaginative as the images which inspired it."
Nanette Kaplan Solomon / The IAWM Journal, 1995 on CD eMotion
"Lee’s distinctive scoring was beautifully transparent, even when thick with independent parts. This clarity, with the silvery upper tones that dominated the piece, gave the music a magical glow from start to finish.”
