Kirill Gerstein has postponed his May 1st concert due to illness. We are thrilled to share, however, that 2012 Gilmore Young Artist George Li has agreed to step in and perform.
Praised by The Washington Post for combining “staggering technical prowess, a sense of command, and depth of expression,” pianist George Li possesses brilliant virtuosity and effortless grace far beyond his years.
Mr. Li was the youngest ever recipient of the Gilmore Young Artist Award in 2012 at only 16 years old. In 2016, he received an Avery Fisher Career Grant and has rapidly established a major international reputation as he performs regularly with some of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, James Gaffigan, and Michael Tilson Thomas.
For his recital at The Gilmore, Li brings his considerable pianistic power to Franz Liszt’s towering Sonata in B Minor, and the complete Preludes by Frederic Chopin. The works presented on this program are a tour de force of emotional and virtuosic drama, a perfect match for the fiery musicianship of Mr. Li.
Additional opportunities to see Mr. Li:
