MINGDU LI

Composer | Pianist 

Welcome to the website of musician and composer Mingdu Li. View her music, reviews, news and events on this website.

"My musical aesthetic involves interpreting abstract concepts from quantum physics and expressing through my compositions the notion of humanity's insignificance in relation to my Creator."

                    

                                                      - Mingdu Li 2023

 "...the music has a compelling ever-present pulse, conveying the sense of inexorability..."

"...three female composers whose work I have felt moved to regard as confirmation of absolute mastery of orchestration: Anna Thorvaldsdóttir, Mingdu Li and now Claire McCue... allow me to believe that orchestral music has an assured future, in Scotland and internationally."

- Donal Hurley, Edinburgh Music Review

" ...exuding a sense of an uncontrollable beast of pure energy... a confident work."

 -  David Smythe, Bachtrack Music Review
