Ang LiDSCF0281

is an internationally acclaimed piano virtuoso whose performance credits and talents reach well beyond her years. Her youth, talent, personality and audience appeal, truly make her one of the world’s rising classical piano stars. Her extensive repertoire ranges from early Baroque to contemporary piano music.

Hailed as “a most accomplished pianist” by the InDaily Australia and “a revelation” by La Press Montréal, Ang Li made her first public appearance at Beijing Concert Hall at age six. At age thirteen, she made her orchestral debut with The Little Orchestra Society of New York at Avery Fisher Hall.

In 2007, Ang Li was invited by the China National Center for the Performing Arts to replace pianist Yundi Li in the performance of the Ravel Piano Concerto in G major with The China National Symphony Orchestra.  She was immediately re-engaged to perform at that venue with the Beijing Symphony Orchestra in 2008. She has also performed with the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, Staten Island Symphony, Lanaudière Music Festival Orchestra, City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, among others.

Ms. Li has toured five continents and recently played venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Amphitheatre de Lanaudière in Quebec, Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall of The University of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Tianjin Concert Hall, Hong Kong City Hall and has received rave reviews and genuine love from her audience.

Ang Li’s China recital debut as part of the 2007 “Meet in Beijing Arts Festival” was televised nationally by China Central Television. Her performances can be heard frequently on CBC Radio and WQXR Radio. Ang Li’s latest CD releases include music of Chopin, Debussy, Haydn and Wagner-Liszt (by China Record Corporation) and of Brahms and Schlenck (by Contemporary Record Society) and of Brahms, Bowen, Debussy, Granados and Liszt (by Van Cliburn Foundation).
