A chance to hear the pianist whose magical interpretations feature with every issue of Pianist magazine

 

Chenyin Li will appear in recital at St John’s Smith Square on Wednesday 23 May, performing works including Beethoven’s ‘Waldstein’ Sonata and Stravinsky’s Petrushka.

 

Chenyin’s career was launched after winning the 6th Scottish International Piano Competition in Glasgow (which Pianist covered long before she became our house pianist!), as well as being the first prizewinner of the Campillos International Piano Competition, Dudley International Piano Competition and the European Beethoven Gold Medal.  

 

Chenyin’s playing has been heard through numerous radio and television broadcasts in countries such as Spain, Ireland, New Zealand and China. She is a prolific recording artist, constantly committed to studio work; some of her work includes CDs of the Scottish International Piano Competition, Light and Water featuring the piano music of British composer Rhian Samuel and a DVD recorded at the Auckland International Piano Festival in New Zealand. As a Blüthner Artist, she has recorded solo piano works by Debussy for the Genuin Label with the title Hommage à Debussy in 2012.

 

Since 2011 Chenyin has been the exclusive recording artist for Pianist and has published nearly 40 CDs as well as numerous performance videos that make her a very popular pianist on the Internet.

 

Watch Chenyin perform Debussy's La fille aux cheveux de lin (the piece appears in the current issue of Pianist):

 

 

At her recital, Chenyin will perform on a Blüthner concert grand.
