The artist with most hits on Slipped Disc?

In 2015 it was ‘none of the above’.

A year of withdrawals, society weddings and concert lapses made this Chinese pianist the most watched on our site.

This one. The other one didn’t come close.

    Norman, how is this not preaching to the choir? OBVIOUSLY your audience will click on artists you favor, but that hardly reflect whats going on in the street.

    Go to any reddit or quora thread on “classical music for relaxation” or the sort (which very likely has 10x the audience of slippedisc) and your winners most likely dont even exist. They are not even tacitly mentioned.

    Ok, so it was the other piñata on slipped disc…

    It’s astonishing that there is SOMEONE who hasn’t watched YUNDI’ Chopin competition performance, which is one of the best Chopin music performance. YUNDI is among the best Chopin’s interpreters. European reviews speak highly of him, such as:
    Yundi proved himself as an artist of both finesse and sheer power.
    Yundi’s well-honed, ebb-and-flow phrasing lent the work a natural sense of architecture, never feeling overwrought.
    it seems more likely a sign of Yundi ‘s growth and seriousness that he plays with restraint and control when he is expected to show off, and puts Chopin ‘s music well above the hype.

    He is always hot in Asia, he is almost the most popular pianist after he won the International Chopin Competition. Everybody loves his interpretation of Chopin, Liszt, Prokofiev, Beethoven, Schumann.

    I really enjoy his performance, like this:
    Yundi Li – 14th International Chopin Competition (2000)
    La Campanella by Yundi Li
    Yundi Li – Beethoven Moonlight Sonata (2014 Japan)
