George Li won silver medal at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and was promptly signed-up by Warner Classics. We welcome him to the Oxford Piano Festival for the first time, to present staples of the Austro-German piano repertoire. The idea of the fantasy is at the heart of his programme, which includes the outpouring of frustrated love that is Schumann’s Fantasie in C major and Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy – a journey from alienated exile to euphoric self-assurance that contains the grandest keyboard writing the composer would write.
