Yundi Li at the Warsaw Chopin Competition in 2000

He won of course, the first pianist to be awarded First Prize in 15 years. You can hear from the YouTube video why. The way he melds with the orchestra in the concerto is amazing. Orchestra and piano sound like an organic whole.

Oh, I thought I spotted Martha Argerich in the audience. Correction: She was one of the jury members! 🙂

  1. Hi, I’m afraid that Martha Argerich is not in the audience but, is upstairs sitting among the other 22 judges. You can find her there.
