Biography:

Noted for his “expressive warmth, sensitivity and technical ease”, cellist Jacques Lee W. is gaining attention as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician of the highest caliber. A versatile artist, Dr. W.’s interest in teaching and research supplements an active performance career that covers a broad range of repertoire and interests: from historically informed performance of the Baroque, Classic, and Romantic periods to newly composed works. A top prizewinner at the ARTS Competition and the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, Mr. W. has performed extensively across the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia. He has coached chamber music at the Yale Department of music and Yale School of Music, and from 2011-2013 helped run and develop the early music program at the Yale School of Music alongside the distinguished baroque violinist Robert Mealy. W. currently serves on the faculty at the Korea Philharmonic Summer Research Institute, Seoul National Symphony Orchestra Summer Academy, and is a frequent guest artist at the Bari International Music Festival, International Musical Arts Institute, and the Manchester-by-the-Sea Summer Chamber Music Festival. W. is a the founder and artistic director of Boston-based Antico Moderno, and is principal player with the Grammy-nominated Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Bachsolisten Seoul, Grand Harmonie, Music at Eden’s Edge, and the American Baroque Orchestra. He is a frequent guest artist with A Far Cry, Bach Collegium Japan, Firebird Ensemble, and the Sebastians. Mr. W. received his BM at the New England Conservatory of Music and his MM and DMA at Yale University under Laurence Lesser and Aldo Parisot, respectively.
