Notes & Reviews:

Li plays the repertoire for which he is so highly acclaimed - Chopin and Liszt - with recordings of two of the most popular works from Romantic concerto repertoire. For his first concerto recording, Li collaborates with the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davis. "Li is immensely talented his potential seems limitless." -The Boston Globe

BBC Music Magazine
The Liszt especially is scintillating. From the opening octaves Li seems to throw caution to the wind, which is really the only way to play this concerto, fusing electrifying spontaneity with meticulous control.

New York Times
Mr. Li is a poetic player with a sensitive touch (but also ample power when he needs it), as well as an ear for textural clarity and an impeccable sense of line. Those qualities, notable on his handful of recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, served the Chopin perfectly.
