“Very pleased and very honored to be back after two years. I came the last time in 2014 and this time I get incredible feedback from the public here. I am very, very honored. The Argentine audience gave me such energy, such a positive one. I am very happy to perform tonight. ”

The Chinese artist thrilled his fans with performances of “The Seasons” by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, “Italian Concerto” by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Frederic Chopin’s 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th scherzos.

“I just did a New York album, which features a lot of beautiful songs from Bernstein to Alicia Keys. I was working with Herbie Hancock the great jazz pianist, and we did Rhapsody in Blue in new version for two pianos. So that is coming out next month worldwide. So I am very excited to have this unusual kind of project. ”

The pianist, 34, will continue his Latin American tour with a concert in Santiago, Chile, on August 15, before beginning a world tour in September.
