Yundi & War­saw Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Li Yundi 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, Li has been re­garded as a lead­ing ex­po­nent of Chopin’s mu­sic. The New York Times praised his per­for­mances: “the bril­liant young Chi­nese pi­anist has proved a tech­ni­cally as­tound­ing pi­anist who is by turns el­e­gant and ram­bunc­tious, coolly ex­pres­sive and white-hot.” For his reg­u­lar recital tours, Yundi per­forms at many pres­ti­gious venues and fes­ti­vals. In ad­di­tion, or­ches­tras and con­duc­tors with whom he has col­lab­o­rated in­clude the Ber­liner Phil­har­moniker and Seiji Ozawa. He has also per­formed with the Na­tional Sym­phony Or­ches­tra (Wash­ing­ton), Philadel­phia Or­ches­tra, Toronto Sym­phony and NHK Sym­phony. War­saw Phil­har­monic gave its first con­cert on Novem­ber 5, 1901 in the Phil­har­monic’s newly built con­cert hall. The Or­ches­tra was con­ducted by Emil Mły­narski – co-founder, first mu­sic di­rec­tor and res­i­dent con­duc­tor of the Phil­har­monic, while the solo part was played by Ig­nacy Jan Paderewski. Un­der its new di­rec­tor Wi­told Row­icki, War­saw Phil­har­monic re­gained the rep­u­ta­tion of Poland’s lead­ing sym­phony or­ches­tra.
