「如果中國希望可以出一位偉大的小提琴家,他們已經擁有了,只需好好培養他。」小提琴大師歷治聽了李傳韻演奏後作出總結,「這位年青人前途無限,他具有超凡的小提琴家能力,及作為一個偉大小提琴家應有的必備條件。」

被《每日鏡報》譽為「才華洋溢,力度與表達能力驚人」的李傳韻是當今中國及國際頂尖小提琴家之一。他三歲由父母啟蒙,1986年起是葉氏兒童音樂實踐中心的中堅分子,並獲企業家蔡建中先生贊助,隨北京中央音樂學院的林耀基教授學藝,此後獲得多個比賽獎項,包括11歲時獲20位評委一致選為第五屆維尼亞夫斯基國際青年小提琴大賽青年組冠軍。他在茱莉亞音樂學院隨迪蕾、帕爾曼及姜康學習,繼而在辛辛那堤大學音樂學院深造,師隨迪蕾及薩斯曼,後又獲金寶爾基金會贊助,在紐約隨郭伯斯繼續進修。

李氏經常在中國、日本及美國巡迴演出,並曾與指揮格爾基耶夫和鹿特丹愛樂樂團、約菲和底特律交響樂團、迪華特及香港管弦樂團、水藍和星加坡交響樂團及李心草和中國國家交響樂團等知名指揮和樂團合作。2002年,李氏替陳凱歌的電影《和你在一起》錄製小提琴獨奏音樂,《華盛頓郵報》評為「彷如天籟的琴音,為這齣電影添加美極動人的音響背景」。2003年李氏不顧沙士疫情,冒險回港臨時代替不能來港的獨奏家與香港小交響樂團及葉詠詩指揮演出,大獲觀眾與樂評人讚賞。

2004年香港電台製作一系列傑出華人青年音樂家節目,當中包括李氏、郎朗、李雲迪及王健等。2006年李氏巡迴美國演出,《紐約時報》稱李氏為「一流小提琴家」,又説:「有機會聽到李氏演奏小提琴已不枉這個晚上。」

李氏曾灌錄多張專輯,包括15歲時錄音的帕格尼呢全套24首《隨想曲》、由普羅唱片發行的『預言鳥』、及與著名鋼琴家羅伯特‧肯尼合作錄音的CD『愛的致意』、SACD『琴魂』、DVD『名琴上的精靈之舞』及2007發行的DVD『名琴傳韻』。
