A pianist from China who won the prestigious 14th Internation Chopin Competition after a 15 year period in which no one was awarded 1st. He is still the youngest competitor ever to compete in and win the competition. Since then he's performed at Carnegie Hall and has been named a Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. Many consider him one of the greatest pianists ever though he is still very underrated in the United States. Unfortunately, he is overshadowed by his less skilled American counterpart, Lang Lang.
