Siqian Li Concert

“An elegant, subtle and dynamic performance with exceptional musical quality. A rising star of the piano.” Annecy Classic Festival

Rossall’s Signature Concert Series is delighted to welcome Siqian Li, a thrilling and versatile rising star.

November 26th Doors 6pm, 7pm Start

Chinese pianist Siqian Li started her musical education at the age of four. She received her Bachelor of Music Degree at the Central Conservatory of Music (Beijing). She then became the first pianist to be awarded the “Best of the Best – Top and Innovative Talent” diploma and scholarship from China’s Ministry of Culture. In 2020, she received the Artist Diploma at the Royal College of Music, London, where her mentor was the world renowned professor, Norma Fisher.

Siqian has enjoyed significant success on the competition circuit. In 2018, she was a semi-finalist in the Leeds International Piano Competition. In 2020, Siqian won the gold medal at the Chappell Medal Piano Competition, the Royal College of Music’s top award for pianists. She was the silver medalist and a special prize winner at the San Jose International Piano Competition (2019) as well as the Grand Prix and a special prize winner of the Vladimir Krainev International Piano Competition.

Her performances have taken place across most of Europe, China, the USA, Japan, and South Korea. Siqian is a Yamaha Young Artist, Drake Calleja Trust Scholar (London), the recipient of the Lansum Music Scholarship (Los Angeles), the Chengxian Fu Music Scholarship (Taiwan), and is generously supported by the Talent Unlimited Foundation (London).

Most recently, Siqian competed in the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition (April 2021) and the Sydney International Piano Competition (July 2021).

Siqian Li will perform a diverse and exciting programme featuring Carl Vine’s dreamlike Five Bagatelles, Liszt’s greatest piano work, the formidable and dazzling Sonata in B Minor, Ravel’s radiant and vivid La Valse, which has been brought to life by the brilliant pianist and arranger Alexander Korsantia. She will also give a performance of Tan Dun’s Eight Memories in Watercolour ‘a diary of longing’ inspired by folk songs of the composer’s culture and memories of his childhood in Hunan Province’, which is a work that Siqian was passionate to bring to the stage tonight.

Rossall’s Signature Concert Series is delighted to welcome this thrilling and versatile rising star to the stage this evening.
