    Wow! I can see why he won! That is some of the most beautifully expressive playing I’ve seen in quite some time…and what a beautiful piece! Thanks for posting this video, Chris; I’ll call it my “Wednesday Motivation.” 😉

    For those who liked this piece, be sure to check out his piece “Whispered by the Wind”… Seriously the beat piece of music I’ve heard all year.

    Chen Zhi’s students easily won the 2 youth competitions. Tengyue Zhang (张腾跃) could just as easily have entered the Artist Competition and gone far, if not have won it! He’s a fantastic performer.
