演出介绍:

李云迪,国际著名中国钢琴家。“肖邦国际钢琴比赛”历史上最年轻的冠军,中国“国宝”级艺术家,多次为中国和世界各国领导人以及国际国内大型庆典活动表演; 他被英国BBC广播公司誉为“来自中国的超级钢琴巨星”。

李云迪是当今国古典乐坛公认的肖邦最权威的阐释者,从2000年获得肖邦国际钢琴比赛冠军开始,李云迪就一直与肖邦有着不解之缘。李云迪为肖邦作品开创了全新的演奏风格,肖赛特邀评论员评论他“是在掌握肖邦演奏风格上最完美、最富有诗意的钢琴家”。

肖邦的作品中张扬着鲜明的个性、叙述着优美的爱情、迸发着强烈的爱国之心和民族之情。他是浪漫主义时期唯一一位完全献身于钢琴音乐的重要作曲家,他将自己的全部才华、情感与思想都融入到了音乐中。因兼具技术上的挑战和音乐上的美感,肖邦练习曲一直经久不衰,也经常被用作演出曲目。李云迪是我们这个时代最优秀的肖邦音乐诠释者之一,当他坐在黑白琴键前,一切喧嚣仿佛都会暂时停止,在那些熟悉的旋律中,他与他的听众一道探寻着音乐的艺术新境。

在音乐会中“自弹自指”,对于艺术家来说,并非是一件轻松的事情。在接受国家大剧院的采访时,李云迪表示,“这是一个挑战,确实不是特别容易。要指挥就需要站起来,照顾到整个乐团;然后又要坐下去,去想自己弹奏的部分。”虽然“自弹自指”是一大挑战,但李云迪希望能够通过这种方式,向广大的观众全面展现他心中的肖邦,“一般来说乐团是和指挥家去合作,可能也有指挥家自己对作品的理解。这次完全是我个人的一个理解,所以说能完整和统一地表达出我心中的肖邦。我希望能在无数种可能性之中,找出现在我最认可的和在这个时期我最希望展现给大家的一种可能性。”

Internationally acclaimed pianist YUNDI was propelled onto the international stage when he won first prize at the XIV Chopin International Piano Competition at the age of 18, becoming the youngest and first Chinese winner in the history of the renowned competition. Since then, he has been regarded as a international piano star, also a leading exponent of Chopin’s music.

In recognition of his contribution to Polish culture, the Government of Poland presented a Gold Medal for Merit to Culture ‘Gloria Artis’ to YUNDI in 2010.
