Brilliant Cellist Okkyung Lee Performs Samuel Beckett, Yi Sang Inspired Compositions at New York's The Kitchen in March

The brilliant cellist/composer Okkyung Lee brings her unique, forward-thinking stylings to New York's non-profit space The Kitchen for two performances on March 21 and 22.

Inspired by Samuel Beckett's First Love and Korean surrealist writer Yi Sang's The Wings, Lee will present a new suite of darker compositions for strings and percussion.

Given the weight of her most recent release Ghil (which was well received even by Pitchfork), Lee should stun audiences aiming for a truly visceral listening experience.

Her Kitchen performance is made possible with the support of The Jerome Foundation, The Amphion Foundation, Inc., Mary Flagler Cary Chartiable Trust, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation--and with public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts.

Tickets are a steal at $15, so make sure you grab one before they sell out.

Avant-garde to say the least, here's Lee in London.
