It was in eager anticipation that our pupils left school on Tuesday afternoon to attend one of the most impressive musical events to be held at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre this year - Yundi Li.
Yundi Li was the first prize laureate of the Chopin International Piano Competition in 2000. The Chopin International Piano Competition takes place every five years and is regarded as one of the most important music events in the world.
On this occasion Yundi Li performance of Chopin's piano concerti demonstrated a huge feat of endurance and stamina. In addition to playing the piano, he demonstrated his remarkable musical knowledge by conducting the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra himself!
Our pianists were left enthralled and inspired by Yundi Li all encompassing performance.
