Live in Beijing captures the full live experience from Yundi’s June 2010 concert in China’s extraordinary new National Centre of the Performing Arts in Beijing. Yundi, known to many as the “Prince of the Piano” is famed throughout his homeland since his win in the Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 2000, where he was the first Chinese pianist to win the competition, as well as the youngest ever winner.
In this magnificent CD/DVD release, Yundi gives a live recital of works by Chopin, including his great Sonata No.2. His encores were Chinese works which have been incredibly popular in his recitals around the world. The recording not only captures the energy and thrill of the very special live performance but also illustrates why so many people consider Yundi an icon and a superstar.
