Yundi to guest with National Youth Orchestra on ensemble's first China tour
Yundi will be the featured guest soloist on the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America’s first tour to China in summer 2015 with conductor Charles Dutoit. One of the most visible and compelling advocates for classical music in his native China, Yundi will perform with some of the brightest young musicians from America, as the ensemble makes its very first visit to Asia.
In 2013, Yundi embarked on a highly successful Piano Dream China Tour, which reached an audience of over 55,000 and was the largest classical music tour in the country’s history. Yundi went on to perform at China’s Spring Festival Gala, which was witnessed by an audience of over one billion. Earlier this year, Yundi completed a 25-city European tour, which included music from his latest album, Emperor / Fantasy.
