ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christopher Cooley and Tess Remy-Schumacher gave their debut performances at the Weathersfield Music Festival in Vermont in the summer of 1997. When describing their 2005 Carnegie Hall recital, Edith Eisler of The New York Concert Review wrote, “The two players’ rapport was close and unanimous, their ensemble excellent.”
Judith Lee and Tess Remy-Schumacher have collaborated since summer 2003. They played a great variety of chamber music on numerous recitals while teaching at Phillips Andover Academy Summer Session. Since that time Ms. Lee has been invited to the University of Central Oklahoma several times to give master classes and perform chamber music with Dr. Remy-Schumacher on the faculty concert series.
Since 2006, the Trio da camera has played numerous concerts in Oklahoma, Minnesota, Florida, New York and Boston, including the University of Central Oklahoma and the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis.

Christopher Cooley began playing piano at the age of seven and made his orchestral debut at age 15 with the Florida Youth Orchestra. He holds degrees from Florida State University, the University of Texas-Austin, and a doctorate in Accompanying from the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Heasook Rhee. As a soloist, Dr. Cooley has played with the University of Texas Symphony, the Chamber Orchestra of Florida, and the Musica Bella Orchestra of New York. He was also a finalist in the Nena Wideman Piano Competition (Shreveport, LA) and the Josef Hofmann National Piano Competition (Aiken, SC).
Since moving to New York City in 1998, Dr. Cooley has focused primarily on collaborative playing and has become Dr. Rhee’s teaching assistant at the Manhattan School. He has served as a staff pianist at the International Viola Congress (Texas), the Weathersfield and Elan festivals (Vermont), Opera Lirica (Orvieto, Italy), Centro Studi Italiani (Urbania, Italy), Opera Ischia (Forio, Italy), the Ibla Grand Prize Competition (Sicily), the Austrian-American Mozart Academy (Austria), and the Piatigorsky Seminar for Cellists (L.A.). As a winning accompanist in the Ibla Grand Prize Competition, he performed numerous concerts in Japan, England, and the U.S., including Tokyo City Opera Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie, and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. The Career Bridges Foundation for singers has taken him to Gummersbach, Germany for a two-week Meisterkurs, as well as Italy for a gala concert at the Ravello Festival.
Dr. Cooley has shared the stage with MSM faculty member Palma Toscani, musical theater soprano Marni Nixon, NY City Opera soprano Lauren Flanegan, violinist Sung-Ju Lee, cellist Myung-Wha Chung, and flutist Leone Buyse. Numerous collaborations have taken him to St. Petersburg, Russia (Glinka Philharmonia Hall); Pusan, S. Korea (Pusan Culture Center); and South Africa, as well as Weill Hall and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The New York Concert Review described him as “an excellent, solicitously supportive pianist who came through with flying colors.”

Originally from Minnesota, Judith Lee moved to the Boston area in 2001 after having completed her Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music, and her Master of Music degree from the Indiana University School of Music. In 2003 she received an Artist Diploma from the Longy School of Music, working with Malcolm Lowe. Other influential teachers and prominent mentors include Catherine Tait, Oleh Krysa, David Effron and Nelli Shkolnikova.
Chamber music and orchestral performances include Aspen Music Festival, Costa Rica International Music Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, UBS Verbier Festival and Chamber Orchestras of Switzerland, and the 2005 NHK International Orchestra of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.
Judith actively performs chamber music and with orchestras, in and around the New England area, and is on the faculty at Phillips Andover Academy and at the New England Conservatory Preparatory Division.

As a Fulbright scholar, she studied with Lynn Harrell in his Piatigorsky Class at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, where she was awarded her Master of Music. As “most outstanding graduate of the year for performance, academic excellence, and leadership,” she received her doctorate under the supervision of Eleonore Schönfeld.
Tess Remy-Schumacher has won first prizes in Germany’s Jugend musiziert, New York’s International Artist Competition, and Rome’s Carlo-Zecchi Competition. She has performed in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States, including Wigmore Hall, London; Jubilee Hall, Singapore; Carnegie Hall, New York (1995, 2005); and Bradley Hall, Chicago.

In The New York Concert Review, Edith Eisler wrote of her 2005 Carnegie Hall recital, “Ms. Remy-Schumacher’s technique is disciplined… Her bow control and mastery of the fingerboard are complete; her intonation is excellent.”

Recording engineer Hermann Heinrich, born in 1965 in Regensburg, Germany, is internationally known for his recordings of instrumental, vocal, orchestral, and choral music. He holds degrees in Cello Performance (with Sigmund von Hausegger) and Education from the Musikhochschule Munich, and performs frequently in concerts as cellist and bassist.


Young June Lew is a painter whose palette is correspondingly sumptuous yet understated. Her huge paintings possess an unexpected intimacy in which the figures become characters in a revealing story. Her richly worked textures in mixed media often incorporate elements of her daily life: the morning’s coffee grounds, or handmade Korean paper stained with that coffee and applied to the canvas. As her main motif, empty clothing also represents each of us in our ordinary lives. The garments’ worn appearance recalls a past through which we all have come, even as we move forward. She explains: “mankind has a fundamental desire to migrate from one place to another. Making the move creates an event, which becomes history. This history does not disappear; we, the living, remember it and make it a part of ourselves. As we mature and gain experience in this way, we begin to foresee what will come. These clothes, then, are remembrances of history, experiences of the present, and yearnings for the future.”
Ms. Lew’s artwork has been shown in collections and exhibitions in North and South America, Asia, and Europe. Detailed can be found at www.andrewbaegallery.com.

This recording is a very special tribute to the Brisch Family, presented in memoriam to Dr. Hans Brisch, who was a passionate supporter and lover of music throughout his life. House concerts were often held at the Brisch home, and in February 2006, the Trio da camera performed the Tchaikovsky Trio for Hans. Three days later, on Feb. 22, Hans died of a brain tumor. The Tchaikovsky Trio has thus become symbolic of Hans' great life.
-- The Brisch Family, August 2007

Dr. Hans Brisch was named the fourth Chancellor for the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education on December 14, 1987. He is known for the courage, vision and strength he brought to the realm of higher education, often referring to his work through visual definition: “A classroom is four walls with a future inside.” As one of Oklahoma’s most respected leaders, he and his team ambitiously carried out the goal of providing higher education opportunities for Oklahomans, serving countless many in the name of “student success.”
Born in Germany in 1940, Dr. Brisch immigrated to the United States at the age of 17 and completed his high school and college education while supporting himself through work, scholarships, and loans. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a minor in Chemistry from Park College, and a Master of Arts and Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Kansas. Academic honors accorded Hans Brisch include Fulbright-Hays Fellow, University of Alabama Research Grant Award, Venice Seminar Fellow, Public Administrative Fellow, Seminar Fellow—University of Belgrade and NDFL Title VI Fellow.
During his career Dr. Brisch served as Chancellor for the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education, and also served on the Illinois Board of Higher Education. He taught at the University of Alabama, University of Nebraska, and Nebraska Wesleyan University. He also served as the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, Executive Assistant to the President, and Associate Executive Vice President and Provost at the University of Nebraska, as well as Chief of Staff for Nebraska Governor Kay Orr.
Dr. Brisch was a member of numerous professional, academic and civic organizations and held positions of active leadership in many of them. He passed away February 22, 2006, leaving his wife, Margaret, their three children: Ellen, Matthew, and Megan, grandson Samuel and his sister Gisela Bridge.
