In a titled "Andrew Li’s High Energy" , David Moran of the Boston Musical Intelligencer
said, " Stravinsky scrambled up and riffed on music from his Petrushka ballet to
produce a technically fearsome three-movement showpiece (for his friend Arthur

Andrew Li

Praised for his "brilliant technique" as well as heartfelt and appealing lyricism, 19-year-old pianist Andrew Li searches the deepest meanings of the music. As the winner of the Boston Symphony Orchestra Youth Concerto Competition and the Harvard Music Association Achievement Awards, Andrew has consistently shown his ability to connect with the audience. He is also a prize-winner at numerous international competitions, such as the Cooper International Piano Competition, the Hilton Head International Piano Competition, and the Minnesota Piano-e-Competition.

Andrew has previously performed with the Boston Symphony, Minnesota, Hilton Head Symphony, Glens Falls Symphony, NEC Youth Symphony, and Symphony Pro Musica orchestras, and has performed in venues such as Boston Symphony Hall, Orchestra Hall, Jordan Hall, Warner Concert Hall, and the Shalin Liu Performance Center.

A fervent chamber musician, Andrew and his trio were featured on NPR’s From the Top, performing Haydn’s Trio in C Major. He also appeared on the show as a soloist, performing Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody no. 6.

Andrew gave his first solo recital at Utica’s First Presbyterian Church when he was 10. At the age of 13, Andrew performed at the Rockport Music Festival, playing Wagner’s Siegfried-Idyll in a four-hand performance with his older brother, George. Recently, he performed at the Chopin Foundation of the United States and the Rockport Music Festival.

Andrew started lessons with Ms. Dorothy Shi at the age of 6. He is currently a rising sophomore at the Harvard/NEC Joint Program, and has studied at NEC with Professor Wha Kyung Byun since the age of 13.
