In an aim of actively promoting excellent classical music to Hong Kong people, the Shun Hing Group sponsored the "Yundi Li in Recital" organized by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, following the success of the "Panasonic Enchanted Strings Concert" presented by Wang Jian, Lu Siqing and Huang Mengla in early July.
The recital was held on 8 September, 2008 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall. Yundi Li presented a number of masterpieces, including three pieces from Chopin - "Nocturne Op.9, No.2", "4 Mazurkas Op.33" and "Andante spianato et Grande Polonaise brillante Op.22"; "Widmung" from Schumann/Liszt, "Five Yunnan Folksongs" from Wang Jian-zhong and "Pictures at an Exhibition" from Mussorgsky.
Dr. William Mong, Chairman of Shun Hing Group, said, "Yundi's piano technique is precise and crystalline, his fluidity on the keys and boundless enthusiasm attracts millions of audiences. I feel delighted and honored to sponsor his performance, particularly in the year 2008 that coincides with the 55th anniversary of our Group. Our participation and support not only helps promote classical music to the general public, but also shows our recognition and support to the Chinese musicians."
