Ji Liu's brilliant third album of piano classics is OUT NOW. It will be Classic FM Album of the Day, on Wednesday 3 February.
Ji’s debut album Piano Reflections shot straight to No. 1 on the UK Classical Chart, making him the UK’s biggest-selling classical breakthrough artist of 2014.
Now the star pianist is back with his third album. Pure Chopin is a collection of 16 brand new recordings dedicated to Ji's favourite composer - listen to some previews below.
Here's an exclusive video of his performance of Chopin's Etude in C minor – nicknamed the 'Revolutionary' for very good reason…
