George Li at Southbank Centre March 20, 2018
Tonight marks the International Piano Series debut of the young Chinese-American pianist George Li.
Since winning silver medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, he has been attracting rave reviews as his impressive career accelerates.
"Mr Li's playing combined youthful abandon with utter command" (New York Times).
He is also the winner of Paris's XIV Concours International Grand Prix Animato 2014 and a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, and has been touring widely, notably with the conductor Valery Gergiev.
