yundi chopin

Yundi Li returns on Saturday to the Philharmonic Hall where he won the Chopin International Comeptition 14 years ago. There has been a last-minute ticket surge after it was announced that the recital will not be broadcast.



Fryderyk Chopin:

  • Nocturne in B flat minor, Op. 9 No. 1
  • Nocturne in E flat major, Op. 9 No. 2

Robert Schumann: Fantasy in C major, Op. 17


Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata in F minor, Op. 57 „Appassionata”

Fryderyk Chopin: Andante spianato et Grand Polonaise Brillant in E flat major, Op. 22


  • Petros Linardos says:

    How would a Krystian Zimerman recital sell at the same venue on the same occasion?

    No doubt Zimerman is no Yundi, but he is Polish and a previous Chopin Competition winner.

  • Matt says:

    The previous concert (not a recital) with Krystian Zimerman in Warsaw on 22 September 2013 sold out in 30 minutes 🙂
