Yundi's 2014 Emperor / Fantasy tour, which spans more than 20 cities across China, continues this month with concerts in Hong Kong (December 13), Xi'an (December 17), Guangzhou (December 24), Wuhan (December 27) and Shenzhen (December 28), Beijing (December 31) and Chengdu (January 3, 2015). Yundi's December appearances are highlighted by an appearance at Hong Kong's Hung Hom Stadium, in an event headlined by the Chinese pianist, as well as a spectacular New Year's Eve concert at Beijing's Worker Stadium.
This fall has seen the Chinese pianist touring Japan as well as giving masterclasses and making special public musical appearances in his native country. Widely recognized for his performances of music by the Polish composer, Yundi has been announced as a jury member for the 2015 Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition. The 2015 panel of judges includes musical luminaries such as pianists Martha Argerich and Garrick Ohlsson, to name a few.
