About

Yundi, one of the most celebrated and influential pianists of today, has returned to Warner Classics with the signature of a long-term agreement between him and the label. His first release under the new agreement is an album of Chopinís Piano Concertos nos 1 and 2, on which he directs the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra from the keyboard. This constitutes both his first recording as pianist-conductor and his first recording of the Piano Concerto no.2. His previous Warner Classics release, the complete Chopin Nocturnes, dates from 2010.

Warsaw and Chopin have played an essential role in Yundiís career: in 2000, at the age of just 18, he became the youngest winner of the Chopin International Piano Competition. Since then, he has become recognised as a leading exponent of the Polish composerís music and in 2015 served on the jury of the Chopin Competition. Earlier this year, in recognition of his contribution to Polish culture, he received Polandís Gold Medal for Merit to Culture, ĎGloria Artisí. He first conducted the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra in Chopinís two concertos in 2017, performing in Warsaw, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Chongqing.
