Chinese Piano Pop Stars

Yundi Li - La Campanella
I thought Yundi Li has already lost in the marketing battle to Lang Lang, but this video is unbelievable (but not because of the music).

Nevertheless, looking forward to hear him soon. Actually I think he deserves more recognition than Lang Lang.

Both might be among the best living pianist now, but to me they are nowhere near the Richter etc. level (with Lang Lang some have a different opinion). Question is, will Asia and especially China be able to produce new piano geniuses, and if so, when?
