"Quote from Lee Eiseman, the publisher of the
Boston Musical Intelligencer, titled "Extraordinary Pianist Opens Festival" "Eighteen-year-old-pianist J. J. Jun Li Bui, sixth prize winner at last year’s Chopin Competition, got the 15-part Foundation for Chinese Performing Arts Festival underway in great style last night at NEC’s Williams Hall. Bui’s reserved stage persona gives little indication of his fabulous, fearless technique and original mind. The demanding recital of Chopin, Debussy, and Schubert revealed a fully formed artist. How can an undergraduate, who is currently pursuing his bachelor’s degree at Oberlin Conservatory, sound so mature? Maybe his estimable teacher Dang Thai Son can tell us. "
