Pianist Li Yundi will serve as deputy director of a newly founded Piano Research Institute with Sichuan Conservatory of Music, his alma mater.

It is reported that on May 25, Li will go to Chengdu to accept the post.

The director will be Dan Zhaoyi, his teacher. Li will be one of the three vice-directors.

Li will also be enrolled as a visiting associate professor of the college on the same day.

Officials from the college said the institute would look into the history of piano music in Sichuan province and Li would set up his studio so that piano students could learn from him face to face.

As the youngest and first Chinese winner in the history of the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition, Li enjoys great fame both home and abroad. He used to deliver lectures on the piano and Chinese culture at world famous universities, such as the University of Cambridge and Royal College of Music in London.
