Chinese pianist Li Yundi has been connected with Chopin since he became the youngest winner of the International Frederic Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Poland, in 2000, at the age of 18. But Beethoven's works replace Chopin's to become the main melodies of Li's latest album, which debuted in Asia in September, and of Li's coming recital in Guangzhou.
