Gen Li, piano
Live CD recording at Wigmore Hall, 27th November 2016
This CD album is a winning award of 2016 Jacques Piano Competition.
Track 10, 'Winter Blossoms' for piano four-hands, is composed by Lin Lin, and performed by Gen Li and Lin Lin at Wigmore Hall. The composition is based on an ancient Chinese melody 'Plum Blossoms'. It has three variations from calm to climax. The music sketches the beauty of plum blossom blooming in cold winter, and takes this metaphor to praise the tenacious and persistent characters of saint. Gen and Lin gave the premiere performance of this work together in this concert.
