Meet the Brentano String Quartet – Nina Maria Lee
The Secret Life of the Brentano String Quartet (2007) Nina Maria Lee, celloMy earliest musical memory is… Putting on my father’s headset and listening to records.
When I was a child I wanted to be… Wonderwoman.
My mother and father always told me… To eat all the food on my plate. I never did.
My first instrument was… Piano. It was three years of excruciating pain for both my mother and me.
The thing I like most about my work is… The musical journey I take throughout the course of playing a particular work. We are constantly working and reworking a piece.
At home I like to… Relax. Cook. Be with my husband and explore parts of New York on our bicycles.
The hardest thing I ever… Did was to decide to be a musician.
My happiest moments are… Now.
