masterclass with Yundi
The lessons of a young prodigy
The Chinese pianist Yundi (also known as Yundi Li) shares his unique vision of the art of piano. Amongst his numerous achievements features a First Prize at the Chopin Contest in 2000, the youngest pianist ever to receive the prize. As a specialist of Romanticism, he chronicles some of his anecdotes and gives some memorable pieces of advice.
Is playing an innate gift or is it learned technique? Black magic or strenuous repetition? In this master class, he gives us some insight into understanding musical interpretation, just two days before his very anticipated concert with NCPA Orchestra China which will be broadcasted online on medici.tv.
