About the performance (from Cecilia Concerts website):
David Liam Roberts, cello; LaLa Lee, piano
For the third evening of our 32nd season, we welcome pianist LaLa Lee and cellist David Liam Roberts to our stage in the Lilian Piercey Concert Hall for a riveting program of works that includes Luigi Bocceherini’s challenging Cello Sonata in A major, G. 4, Robert Schumann’s simple but boldly expressive Five Pieces in Folk Style, and Frédéric Chopin's dazzling Introduction and Polonaise brillante in C major, Op. 3. The pair will also perform Christos Hatzis’ coaxing and dramatic Atonement, which impressively fuses tango, jazz elements, and a Jewish theme, as well as Swiss-born composer Ernest Bloch’s From Jewish Life: Prayer, a work that captures the complex, ardent Jewish spirit and soul. Known for his extraordinary technique and sincerely communicative performances, Métis cellist David Liam Roberts is quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting Canadian cellists of his generation. A local audience favorite, pianist LaLa Lee has delighted audiences worldwide as well with solo, chamber, and orchestral performances. Both artists have been featured on CBC Music’s list of Canada’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians under 30”.

Lala is a two-time winner of the Tietje Zonneveld Award, which recognizes excellence in piano. And the 2019 winner of the The Lieutenant Governor’s Award.
