ABOUT GEORGE LI
2015 TCHAIKOVSKY SILVER MEDALIST
As a child prodigy, American pianist George Li made his recital debut in Boston’s Steinway Hall and, in 2011, performed for President Obama in an evening honoring German Chancellor Angela Merkel. He has since emerged as a formidable pianist, rapidly establishing a major international career across three continents after his sensational 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition silver medal win. Also recipient of the 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant, 2012 Gilmore Young Artist Award, and 2010 Young Concert Artists first prize, the pianist returns to Fort Worth after his lauded Bass Hall Cliburn Concerts appearance in January 2020. Catch him this spring in a traditional recital at the Kimbell, or at the Post for a shorter, more casual concert.
