Tsinandali Festival 2019

George Li plays Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt Tsinandali Festival 2019


When you ask him if his virtuosity is natural, George Li likes to respond that it comes above all from lots of hard work: “since I’ve been 11, I’ve been practicing seven hours a day. But I want to say that technique is not the most important thing for a musician. It is only a means for creating music, for making it sound perfect. I believe that, above all, every piece should be played with emotion and feeling; there must be a story that you want to share with your audience." (Rossiyskaya Gazeta) What story will be told by this concert that puts works by Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, and Liszt in dialogue? That’s for you to discover, live from the Tsinandali Festival Concert Hall!
