China's Prince Of The Pianist Li Yundi BEIJING, Sep. 5 (Xinhuanet) Pianist Li Yundi is packaged as the Piano Prince, the elegant patrician and young romantic whose music is poetry. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/indepth/2010-09/05/c_13479339.htm
Extractions: BEIJING, Sep. 5 (Xinhuanet) Pianist Li Yundi is packaged as the "Piano Prince," the elegant patrician and young romantic whose music is poetry. Wang Zhiyu reports. For the extravaganza opening of its flagship store in Lujiazhui last month, Apple chose China's "Piano Prince" Li Yundi not his flamboyant and audacious rival Lang Lang to be the cultural headliner, performing two Chopin nocturnes. The performance, as expected, was brilliant and afterward Apple asked 28-year-old Li to play something else, anything that could be recorded and later downloaded from iTunes. A simple request, it would seem for the youngest-ever winner of the Chopin International Competition in 2000, when he was just 18, and the youngest winner ever. However, Li politely declined the digital request for spontaneity, saying he preferred a "slower, more primitive method" and cited his strict requirements for studio recording and his own professional team. Fans might have been disappointed, but the incident on the evening of July 12 demonstrates Li's well-known perfectionism when it comes to performing and recording his poetic interpretations.
