Ji


Ji

Ji has been praised from a young age for his compelling musical presence and impressive technique. He began playing the piano at age five and at the age of ten, he was the youngest pianist to win the New York Philharmonic’s Young Artist’s Competition, which resulted in an Avery Fisher Hall performance under Maestro Kurt Masur. A winner of the 2012 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, he has since given recitals and outreach programs throughout the United States, all to rave reviews, and he has been a featured soloist with most major symphony orchestras. Ji was the star of a national Android TV commercial, performing Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata on two pianos, one with the usual 88 pitches and one tuned so each key plays a middle C.

He will also appear in a full recital this season for the Artist Series concerts. This is his first apearance on Music Mondays, and it shouldn’t be missed.
