Just finished the last Beethoven Concerto tonight at Royal Albert Hall. It was three amazing nights experience of doing 5 concerti by the great Beethoven. I want to take a deep gratitude to the wonderful Philharmonia orchestra and Maestro Salonen for their heartfelt music making. Thanks to the wonderful audience for 3 nights of passionate support.
I'm so sad to hear about the Tsunami and terrible earthquake in Sendai. I went there for a competition when I was 13-year-old, it was a very bearutiful city. Hope people will stay strong to face the natural disaster together, we are with you!
This World Cup is so strange: France and Italy are both out. Slovakia is in...I'm happy that Spain made it tonight and the Americans did a good job. Sad for the Swiss team as I just arrived there, veryone is a bit down here in the street:-( Next big game for me to watch is England vs. Germany
The Shanghai World Expo is approaching, believe or not, the grand opening is just in 20 days!
Even I'm in Chicago now, I can still clearly feel at the atmosphere and feel so excited.
As an ambassador of the Shanghai World Expo, I'd like to extend an invitation to everybody around the world to join the Expo.
Hope to see you in Shanghai in 20 days. Cheers!
Greetings from Chicago:)
I have just arrived at Munich from Warsaw, still submerged in Chopin's beautiful music.
Yesterday, I was shocked to hear about the devastating earthquake in Haiti that killed thousands and left many many people trapped in the rubble, still waiting for rescues.
Nice to act for music 3D film, my hands came out from the TV screen:) It's really fun!
And really great honor to play for Chopin 200 Year Opening Gala concert tonight in Warsaw. So exciting! President of Poland came and made standing ovation for me. I was very moved by that.
My whole body was on fire tonight when I performed for the 60th anniversary of motherland's birthday. I felt even more proud when I witness the grand, spectacular Tiananmen Square. I hope my music will bring more glory to my motherland and look forward to sending my blessings again with my performance when the 100th anniversary of founding of motherland comes.
I flew out to Washington, D.C. last week for a Memorial Day concert with PBS. Katharine McPhee and the National Symphony Orchestra also performed. I had an amazing time! I ran into some celebrities like Tom Cruise and his lovely wife, Katie Holmes. I even got to meet General Colin Powell!
Well, I finally was able to spend some quality time at home with my family in New York after travelling so much! I was able to enjoy a wonderful home-cooked meal from my mother (thanks mom!) and relax. I rested up and then I was off again to D.C.!
At Carnegie Hall, I performed Brahms Piano Concerto # 1 with Maestro Levine and the MET Opera Orchestra in New York two Saturdays ago. It was really fun! There was a CD and book signing right afterwards. Thanks to everyone for coming out to see it!
I was given the honor to perform a beautiful piece of music by Xiaogang Ye at the Olympic opening ceremony yesterday. Being apart of the young generation in China, it is especially an honor for me to perform at the opening ceremony because it is a symbol of how China is changing. In this new generation, we are enjoying a very different way of life from our parents. We love Western culture and classical music but we also have strong and sturdy Chinese traditions.
Yesterday I was very excited to fly from Germany on a private jet to come to Liverpool England and play on the Royal Variety Show. I met many interesting people back stape at the Empire Theater including Bon Jovi, Seal, Jame Blunt and Joan Rivers. The most important thing was to play in front of Her Majesty, the Queen of England and Prince Philip. The Queen thanked me for coming all the way to England and the Prince said how amazing that my fingers are still there after playing such a fast piece!
I went to Dubai and loved it. It has an exotic middle east look but also a modern NY look. The city is edgy and fantasy land like. I had an amazing tour of the desert safari. It was like a roller coaster ride. I also skiied in an indor resort which was wild! I even rode a camel, ate arabic BBQ and did a belly dance in the middle of the desert.
I'm so excited to move to New York. Finally I've found a wonderful apartment. The reason I'm so excited is to be somewhere that I have so many friends. It will be so great to have a home base and not be in a hotel room. I'm going to focus on spending more days and nights in New York to make it my home.
