Hailed as “a sensation ” (Fanfare), “totally astonishing” and “ an astounding figure” (BBC Radio 3 Record Review), British-Australian pianist Paul Wee is recognised as “ a pianist who possesses transcendental technical prowess, the stamina of a marathon runner, a sure command of large-scale structure, rhythmic élan, and a large portfolio of nuance and color” (ClassicsToday). After a number of early appearances, including a concerto début in London’s Royal Albert Hall aged 12, he continued his studies in New York City at the Pre-College division of the Manhattan School of Music under the tutelage of Nina Svetlanova. Paul decided not to pursue a full-time conservatory education or a subsequent career in the arts, but has remained dedicated to the piano and its repertoire. This gives him a unique freedom to communicate with music and explore the literature on his own terms, but at the highest level. His début recording of Alkan’s Symphony for Solo Piano and Concerto for Solo Piano was released on BIS Records in 2019 to critical acclaim, being shortlisted for a Gramophone Award and Limelight’s Recording of the Year in the Instrumental category, and receiving a Gramophone Editor’s Choice (November 2019) and a Diapason d’Or (January 2020). Paul continues to perform as and when his schedule permits, as a recital soloist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician, both in his current home city of London and internationally.
