“If China wants to have a great violinist, they have one. All they have to do is look after him,” concluded violinist maestro Ruggiero Ricci (March 2004) after listening to Chuanyun Li. “This boy should have a great career. He has a fantastic violinist capability…. He’s got all the requisites.”

Hailed by The Daily Camera as “a massive talent with astonishing dynamic and expressive range…,” Chuanyun Li is one of the foremost violinists of his generation from China and internationally. An active member of the Yip’s Children Arts Centre since 1986, he has studied under the sponsorship of entrepreneur Mr Choi Kin Chung with Professor Yaoji Lin from Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and won numerous prizes, including the 1st Prize in the 5th Wieniawski International Youth Violin Competition at 11. He studied with Dorothy DeLay, Itzhak Perlman and Hyo Kang in the Juilliard School of Music and continued his studies with DeLay and Kurt Sassmannshaus at the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and with Joey Corpus in New York City with the support of the Clarisse B Kampel Foundation.

Li has toured extensively in China, Japan and the US and collaborated with such orchestras as the Rotterdam Philharmonic with Valery Gergiev, Detroit Symphony with Neemi Järvi, Hong Kong Philharmonic with Edo de Waart, Queensland Symphony Orchestra with Michael Christie, China National Symphony with Xincao Li and Singapore Symphony with Lan Shui, among others. In September 2003, at 5 days notice, Li replaced Maxim Vengerov and performed Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole and Ravel’s Tzigane with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra under Rumon Gamba. In the same year, he braved the threat of SARS and returned to Hong Kong to replace an international soloist who could not come and performed with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta under Wing-sie Yip to great critical and audience acclaim.

He performed the solo violin for the soundtrack of Chen Kaige’s movie Together in 2002, noted by the Washington Post for “his ethereal playing,…which has given the movie such a magnificent aural backdrop.” Li was featured in a 2004 Radio Television Hong Kong documentary series of outstanding young Chinese musicians along with Lang Lang, Yundi Li and Jian Wang. When he toured the United States with the China National Symphony in 2006, The New York Times referred to Li as “a first-rate violinist” and remarked that “the chance to hear Mr Li’s violin playing made the evening all worthwhile.”

Li has recorded several CDs and a DVD to his credit, including Prophetic Bird and Salut d’Amour on CDs with POLOARTS in 2002 and 2004 respectively, a DVD in 2005 entitled La Ronde Des Lutins performing on Stradivari BELLO 1687, Stradivari RIES 1693 and Guarneri BALOKOVIC 1729, and a SACD entitled The Soul of Violin recorded on four violins provided by Stradivari Society.
