李若含出生音樂世家,她的父母都是中國著名的聲樂歌唱家。李若含從四歲開始被鋼琴老師發掘其音樂天份,并開始學習鋼琴,五歲已經首次踏足演出舞臺。李氏在童年時已經經常贏得鋼琴比賽的大獎。她對鋼琴演奏的熱誠使她踏上在俄羅斯深造鋼琴演奏十年之路,是香港唯一一位獲莫斯科音樂學院四大鋼琴門派中(Merzhanov, Gornostayeva, Voskresensky及Dorensky)的鋼琴大師梅贊諾夫教授(Prof. Merzhanov)所賞識而直接納入為其入室弟子,在學習期間已經榮獲「紀念莫札特誕辰250周年國際鋼琴比賽」亞軍及「斯拉夫國際鋼琴比賽」季軍。

 

由於李若含在俄國時鋼琴演奏上的表現突出,俄羅斯政府給她頒發「鋼琴獨奏家」的榮銜。李若含完成了鋼琴演奏碩士、室內樂碩士、伴奏碩士及教師碩士,並在莫斯科音樂學院以滿分成績完成鋼琴演奏博士學位。李若含在學習期間已經獲邀到處演出,曾與俄羅斯30多個演奏廳演出。李氏也訪問波蘭及匈牙利等鋼琴家發源地,與蕭邦比賽獲獎者Pietrova教授及李斯特傳人匈牙利鋼琴家Szokolay的學習亦令李若含盡得李斯特,蕭邦及俄國音樂的演繹精髓。

 

多年來李教授獲邀到世界各地演出,其中包括香港,中國大陸,美國,意大利,俄羅斯,波蘭,匈牙利及南美洲多國等地進行獨奏,室內樂及國際音樂節的巡迴演出,在香港兩大音樂廳香港文化中心音樂廳及香港大會堂音樂廳舉行音樂會演出,并曾獲香港多間大學邀請講授大師班及演出。

李若含早於2005年已在香港出版全港第一本中文版的英國皇家音樂學院一至八級鋼琴考試講義,并創立了教育網站www.lijoannaedu.com,使香港的學生,家長及老師得益。李氏成立了李若含鋼琴藝術中心,把俄羅斯系統性的教學方法及老師帶到香港,務求令香港的演奏及教學水平提升至國際標準,薪火相傳,培養一代又一代的香港音樂人才。李博士的獨特及專業教學方法,使其中跟隨她學習只有一年半的8嵗學生成功在坐滿800人的廈門音樂廳舉行個人獨奏會,並於香港大會堂音樂廳舉辦個人鋼琴獨奏會,是香港音樂史上少有的盛事。李氏也成立香港演奏Maestro Performances Hong Kong,把世界著名的演奏家如國際蕭邦鋼琴比賽、國際李斯特鋼琴比賽、國際柴可夫斯基大賽及帕格尼尼國際大賽等獲獎者邀請到香港舉行演奏會,對香港音樂界作出重要的貢獻。她亦與阿根廷著名的長笛家錄製了Piazzolla CD專輯,於香港發售,獲得了一致的好評。李若含在Youtube的演出點擊率多達80000次數。

“Joanna Li is a gifted pianist … playing energetically and expressively” – V. Merzhanov, juror of International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw

“… marvelous technique ... moving timbre ...” – B. Lvov, renowned German pianist

 

Joanna Li was born into a family of musicians in China. Her parents are both vocal performers. Joanna started to play piano at four and gave her first performance on stage at five. She has won many prizes in piano competitions since her childhood. She studied piano playing in Russia for ten years, under the tutelage of Professor Merzhanov, embodying one of the four piano schools in Moscow Conservatory (namely Merzhanov, Gornostayeva, Voskresensky and Dorensky). Joanna Li was granted the title of “Solo Performer” by the Russian Government, which is only conferred on the most outstanding conservatory graduates in the country. She was awarded the Doctor’s degree in piano performance, with full marks, by one of the most prestigious conservatories in the world - the Moscow Conservatory. 

Joanna Li was the winner of two international piano competitions, namely the International Piano Competition Celebrating the 250th Anniversary of Mozart’s Birth and the International Slavonic Piano Competition in Russia.

Joanna has been invited to perform in international music festivals and to adjudicate in international competitions in Poland, Hungary, Italy, Spain, China, Hong Kong, USA, Russia, Mexico and Argentina. She was also in duet with world-famous violinists such as Tatiana Samouil, Stéphane Tran Ngoc and Igor Yuzefovich. Her performances in the Hong Kong City Hall and Hong Kong Cultural Centre have enthralled the Hong Kong audience.

Having initiated “Maestro Performances Hong Kong”, Joanna has brought winners of most important international competitions named after maestri such as Bach, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Paganini to perform in Hong Kong.

Joanna’s own piano school, namely Joanna Li Piano Arts Centre, commits to the vision of training future musicians. She was awarded the title of Professor in Russia in 2011. She is the author of the book Lectures on Piano Pieces of ABRSM Exams. She also regularly gives master classes and stages concerts with her students. Her students have already won more than 100 national and international prizes in piano competitions since 2008. She has sent students to further studies in Russia, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. One of her students, an eight year old, who has been tutored by Dr. Li for only 1.5 years, has recently performed a recital programme of Chopin and Mozart in front of an 800-strong audience in Xiamen, China. Moreover, her solo debut in the Hong Kong City Hall is planned for May 2019, which is rather rare in Hong Kong. 

 

Dr. Li’s third album, featuring Chinese and Liszt music, will be published in December 2018. She then plans perform and record with orchestra the Yellow River Concerto and Butterfly Lovers Concerto in her fourth album.
