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…

The new album is not totally dedicated to Frederic Chopin - the bonus track, 'Nocturne Orientale', is an original piece written by composer and friend Stephen Hough.
