12-year-old violinist Christian Li from Australia is quickly building an international reputation as an emerging young virtuoso of outstanding potential.
A student of Robin Wilson at the Australian National Academy of Music, Christian is a former recipient of the Keshet Eilon International String Mastercourse Nora Goodridge Scholarship and was awarded Joint-1st prize in the Junior Division of the 2018 Menuhin Competition, in Geneva.
His recent debuts include solo performances with the Geneva Chamber Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra.
Christian was this week signed to the Decca Classics as the youngest musician to ever be signed to the label.
He currently performs on a 1733 Dom Nicolo Amati violin – on generous loan from Reuning & Sons Violins Boston.
