 A new look at the Emperor June 17, 2014 By Frances Vandervoort See All My Reviews "Not long ago I attended a concert in which Yundi Li performed with the Chicago Symphony, Needless to say I was very impressed with the transcendent way he lets the music speak for itself. I was delighted to hear a portion of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto played by Mr. Li a few weeks ago on Radio Station WFMT in Chicago, and knew I had to have the recording. I have not been disappointed. Thank you, Frances S. Vandervoort Chicago" Report Abuse
