George Li


  • 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. He captured the Silver Medal at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition and was the recipient of the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant. Among George’s many prizes, he was the First Prize winner of the 2010 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the 2012 Gilmore Young Artist Award.

The real revelation came in Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, played by George Li…he is a powerhouse. I have seldom heard the many blazing octave passages in the outer movements played faster or more cleanly, let alone both at the same time.

Li’s performance left no doubt that he combines staggering technical prowess, a sense of command and depth of expression.
