While the school year is winding down for most kids, George Li is having a busy month of June. The local piano wunderkind performed Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 last night at a White House State dinner honoring German Chancellor Angela Merkel. (The video above shows him playing the same work in a 2009 recital.)
Li, who is 15 and studies piano at New England Conservatory with Wha-Kyung Byun, will soon be heading off on a European tour soon, performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 with the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra.
