1.0 out of 5 stars When all the reviews were being submitted by one single party, it is plain what's happening., 9 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Live in Beijing (Audio CD)
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.
