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.

Verdi: Aida

Shang­hai Opera House Cho­rus and the Shang­hai Opera House Orches­tra will present their ren­di­tion of Verdi’s clas­sic opera Aida at Shang­hai Grand The­atre in Septem­ber. Aida is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Ital­ian li­bretto by An­to­nio Ghis­lanzoni. To­day the work holds a cen­tral place in the op­er­atic canon, re­ceiv­ing per­for­mances ev­ery year around the world; at New York’s Metropoli­tan Opera alone, Aida has been per­formed for more than 1,100 times since 1886. A meet­ing of cul­tures, the Shang­hai pro­duc­tion will be per­formed by more than 300 Shang­haibased artists in Ital­ian and English with Chi­nese sub­ti­tles. Date: Septem­ber 15 to 17, 7:15 pm
