Yundi Li - Chopin "Fantasie" Impromptu, Op. 66


Li Yundi (simplified Chinese: 李云迪; traditional Chinese: 李雲迪; pinyin: Lǐ Yúndí) (born October 7, 1982) is a Chinese classical pianist. He is also popularly known as Yundi and formerly Yundi Li. Born in Chongqing, Li is most well known for being the youngest pianist to win the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition, in 2000, at the age of 18. He currently resides in Hong Kong.

Of course no video collection would be complete without the cliche Yundi Li video of him playing Chopin's "Fantasie" Impromptu in C-sharp minor, Op. 66 No. 4.
This is one of my favorite pieces.

Did you know: Chopin hated this piece? He composed it when he was just 24 and regretted it ever after.
