Chuan Yun LI - recent update??
I must have had my head in the sand for the past 15 years. I just stumbled upon this super original and talented player on some youtube videos that are awe inspiring. Just curious if he is touring these days or electrifying any pieces beyond what is already out there. Thank you,
Yes really a trascendental talent for virtuoso pieces,but I think he has heath problems. I don 't see recent video of Li 's concert
He hasn't been playing for long... and indeed seems like he's quite emotionally unstable from his last performances
I was very excited about this player after learning of him when he was featured in a documentary that Bein & Fushi put out. His panache and personality were a breath of fresh air among so many boring contemporary performances, and having him take a masterclass with Ricci just seemed like a perfect combination. Unfortunately, he struggled quite a lot with nerves as his career was growing rapidly, and it plagued him to the point where he was unable to complete a performance onstage and he withdrew from making international appearances. I’ve heard that he is still concertizing regularly in China, but that he hasn’t had plans to go abroad ever since.
Wow! Just checked out his performance of Paganini 24 on YouTube. Incredible! Fantastic technique and flair, highly original to the point of major departures from the original - really a parallel no. 24.
I agree that his improvisations (I assume they were largely thus) on P24 are strikingly original. I'm guessing that the violinists of the Sirius or Turtle Island Quartets, or a violinist like Zach Brock would be capable.
I think it is inappropriate to publicly suggest somebody is "quite emotionally unstable" because they appear to suffer from severe stage fright. They are not the same thing at all.
