Notes and Editorial Reviews

Yundi makes his return to Deutsche Grammophon conquering new grounds with his first ever Beethoven recording.

Yundi focuses on the composers most beloved and romantic piano works, the three name sonatas Moonlight, Pathétique and Appassionata.

After winning the 2000 Warsaw Chopin competition Yundi immediately established himself among the leading pianists of his generation.

Rising to outstanding stardom in his native China (where he has performed in TV shows watched by hundreds of millions of people, together with stars like Kylie Minogue) he has maintained his dedication to the classical world.
