Biography

“. . . the recording is fabulous. Yundi Li, the brilliant young Chinese pianist . . . has proved a technically astounding pianist who is by turns elegant and rambunctious, coolly expressive and white-hot. The surging, rhapsodic and daunting Prokofiev concerto is an ideal piece for him. He also gives a splendid account of the Ravel: crackling with energy in the first movement, dreamy in ...

Much is said about the large number of Chinese "acrobats" that have emerged in recent years - pianists with perfect technique but mediocre musical understanding.

Yundi Li's latest disc shows that he is not one of them. The live recording shows that he is but human, and makes mistakes in concerts. I am referring to the Nocturne in D Flat Major, OP 27 No 2. Anyone familiar with this piece will notice that he had a quite obvious memory lapse at bar 56, when he played the first half of bar 16 instead. There is no question that he had learned the wrong notes because he played correctly in his studio recording of the complete nocturnes.

Yundi Li should be applauded for releasing this recording unedited.

"Live in Beijing" is another very impressive recording by Yundi. It is an all-Chopin programme played in 2010 to mark the bicentennial of Frederic (Fryderyk) Chopin's birth. All the pieces were very impressively played here. It is not easy to find a pianist possessing both great interpretative ability as well as very impressive virtuosity. Yundi is one such pianist. To know how well he had played these pieces, you may be able to get a better idea if you compare his playing with that of others.

If you try to compare Yundi's playing of these Nocturnes with that of others, it may not seemed necessary as Yundi belongs to a class of his own - besides possessing more impressive skill, he has got exquisitely tasteful rubato and line of flow. Furthermore, he is able to play the same piece differently at different times depending on the environment and atmosphere. For example, if you compare those Nocturnes played in his previous recording with the Nocturnes played here in this CD, you will prefer the Nocturnes played here when he played them with more enthusiasm in front of the audiences in Beijing. Besides playing these Nocturnes slightly faster here, he also played them with more tasteful rubato and more varied rhythm. Your attention may be drawn to 'Poco piu lento' in the middle section of Nocturne op.48 No.1 when he played it with exceedingly tasteful rubato.

Andante Spianato was played by Yundi in his debut album in 2001. It was played slightly slower, softer and cautiously with monotonous left hand then. Today, he plays with more confidence, greater contrast and more interesting left hand by bringing out his left hand more with crescendo. He had obviously found greater freedom in his expression when he sometimes played with varied rhythm.

I got these two discs, one CD and one DVD.
Frankly speaking, I will never listen to them again. The Li Yun Di that I knew in the early 2000's has since disappeared from the planet earth.
Now we have a film-star, a hyperbole fanned on by a host of Chinese fanatics, who would go to the extreme of posting the same viewpoints under different persona, in UK and USA Amazon alike (an presumably in China Amazon, too).
It would have been fine if this poster just fanned her own idol Yundi.
However, she is ALSO adamant in bashing other Chinese pianists, notably Lang Lang, then lately Yuja Wang. So much for that.
Back to this item. Li Yun Di did not treat Chopin as Chopin. His live performance in Beijing is simply to show off his huge ego as a keyboard technician, and his playing lacked 'soul' - there is no feeling, no nuances, lack alone 'poetry'.
In the DVD, you would see that it might have been a robot playing at the keyboard.
I don't know what happened to this young pianist, once displaying so much promise, and one that I kept on patronising in every possible live performance and discography.
If he does not step back onto the right track, am much afraid that his international pianistic career would soon go bust.
He would still be a celebrity in the PRC, for sure.

Big fan of Chopin. Now big fan of Yundi. His technique second to none. Might not suitable for someone who prefer more traditional intake to Chopin. It is not exactly relaxing to listen but revitalising. More like progressive jazz kind of way,Highly recommended. Good album to introduce yourself a classical music .
