“There is no question 16-year-old pianist George Li has prodigious talent. No wonder the New York-based Young Concert Artists organization sponsored him in his debut… he combines staggering technical prowess, a sense of command and depth of expression” (The Washington Post). When critics from The New York Times to the Boston Phoenix use terms like “sizzling” and “as virtuosic as Lang Lang,” you know you’re about to hear an artist with a brilliant future. Discover this astonishing young star as he performs classics including the Beethoven “Waldstein” Sonata and works by Haydn, Chopin, and Liszt.
