George Li gained international attention in 2015 when he won the silver medal in the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Now he has recorded one of Tchaikovsky's greatest and best-loved works, the Piano Concerto No 1 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Vasily Petrenko. The New York Times has called him a "real revelation" in the work. It is complemented by three solo pieces by Liszt, a composer who featured on his debut Warner Classics recital, judged "a winner" by International Piano magazine.
