YUNDI's Deutsche Grammophon | Mercury Classics CD featuring Beethoven's Emperor Concerto along with a performance of the major solo work, Schumann's Fantasie in C marks the pianists second recording with the Berlin Philharmonic and conductor Daniel Harding. Deemed the "classical pianist with a rock star following" by CNN, YUNDI has developed an astounding profile in his homeland of China, with 15 million Weibo followers (Chinese Twitter) and his 2013 Dream China Tour qualifying as the largest classical tour in China's history. YUNDI's star continues to grow as his 2012 recording of Beethoven's most romantic piano sonatas was chosen as one of Classic FM's ‘Album of the Year 2013' in addition to achieving Platinum status in China.  

The Emperor/Fantasie disc has been selected as the WQED: Pittsburgh - CD Spotlight
