Yundi, from the youngest Chopin Competition champion to the youngest Chopin Competition jury
Chinese pianist Yundi has been chosen as the jury member of the 2015 International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition and becomes the youngest judge in the contest's 88-year history.

The famous pianist Katarzyna Popowa-Zydron is the chairman of the jury; other members include Martha Argerich and Garrick Ohlsson.

In October 2000, Yundi won the first prize at the competition and the special prize of the Fryderyk Chopin Society in Warsaw for the best performance of a polonaise, which made him the youngest winner of the competition and the first Chinese pianist to win the title.

Order Now: Yundi’s ‘Chopin Preludes’ from Mercury Classics

Celebrated for his “wondrous colorings of many Chopin recitals,” (China Daily) Yundi’s newest recording from Mercury Classics features the complete Chopin preludes.


The release comes on the heels of his acclaimed tour of Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto with the National Youth Orchestra of the USA and Charles Dutoit, as well as his Hollywood Bowl debut on August 6, which garnered praise from the Los Angeles Times: “He was at home with the calm beauty of the slow movement. He gave Beethoven’s trills a wonderfully smooth, Zen-like ringing quality.”
