One of the most acclaimed classical pianists of this generation.
Internationally acclaimed pianist Yundi Li was propelled onto the international stage when he won first prize at the XIV Chopin International Piano Competition at the age of 18, becoming the youngest and first Chinese winner in the history of the renowned competition. Since then, he has been regarded as a leading exponent of Chopin’s music. In the autumn of 2014, the Fryderyk Chopin Institute, organizer of The International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition, invited Yundi to be on the jury of the 17th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in 2015, making him also the youngest juror of the competition. In recognition of his contribution to Polish culture, the Government of Poland presented a Gold Medal for Merit to Culture ‘Gloria Artis’ to Yundi in 2019.
Since June 2019, Yundi started his 100-recital world tour, called Yundi Sonata, including over 60 cities in China and 40 cities overseas, which marked the largest tour in his career. Yundi played the sonatas of Schubert, Chopin and Rachmaninoff. Following a brief pause from touring, Yundi returns to Australia playing the sonatas of Mozart, featuring Piano Sonata K331, K310, K475 and K457.
