Li plays with a rare combination of virtuoso skill & poetic interpretations, each note he plays a reminder of why, in 2000, his music inspired the jury of the 14th International Chopin Piano Competition to give out the 1st top prize in 15 years to the then 18-year-old boy . . . “His maturity is obvious from the arrangements of the rhythmic transitions to the superb control of strength variations, which is known as the most difficult part of Chopin’s compositions”, (notes director Zhang Guoyong, who conducted the concert.) “It won’t be long before he is a maestro,” Zhang predicts.
Memory Lane is an unusually pleasant & accessible album containing a selection of beautiful ballad tunes from artists such as Keith Jarrett, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Pat Metheny, Billy Joel, & Charlie Haden played by a large ensemble of top musicians of both classical & jazz backgrounds. This album features Yuri Honing with Large Ensemble conducted by Henk Meutgeert.
