Chinatown alert: Yundi’s been called back to fill the Royal Festival Hall

The last time Yundi Li was in London, three months ago, people told us that the Royal Festival Hall was packed out with Chinese music lovers who had never set foot there before.

They have just announced a return date next February. Booking opens now. What’s that in Chinese?yundi new image

    Any way of knowing whether those who packed RFH to listen to Yundi may come back for something else, not Chinese? Or do we know the answer from what happened to the audience of the three tenors?

    • I don’t want to resurrect similar arguments about crossover, they’ve been done to death, but I think you’re right. I don’t believe that people attracted by celebrity, or some other narrow interest, acquire a wider interest in significant numbers. They just want more of the same.

      Happy to be proved wrong.
