Music at Oakmont


Thursday April 11th 2019 - 1:30pm to

Since winning the Silver Medal at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition, pianist George Li has rapidly established a major international reputation and performs regularly with some of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors. He gave his first public performance at Boston’s Steinway Hall at the age of 10, and in 2011 performed for President Obama at the White House at an event honoring Chancellor Angela Merkel. Li’s many prizes include the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, the 2012 Gilmore Young Artist Award, and First Prize in the 2010 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. In 2018 he graduated from the Harvard University/New England Conservatory joint program.

Concert highlights include performances with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, and Rotterdam Philharmonic. He appears frequently with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. Li is an exclusive Warner Classics recording artist. His debut recital album, released in October 2017, was recorded live at the Mariinsky in St. Petersburg.

For his Music at Oakmont debut, he has chosen Beethoven’s Andante favori in F Major and “Waldstein” Sonata, followed by several selections by Liszt. This concert takes place on Thursday, April 11, at 1:30 PM in Berger Center at Oakmont. For further details, as well as program notes, please visit www.musicatoakmont.org.
