Yundi Li was born in the Chongquing region of central China. His penchant for music became apparent very early in childhood. When he was only three years old, he was fascinated by a man playing an accordion to such an extent that he refused to leave the shopping mall. He began to learn the accordion the very next year. When he was five, he won the top prize at the Chongqing Children's Accordian Competition. He began learning the piano at the age of seven at the request of his parents. He studied with Dan Zhao Yi, one of the most renowned piano teachers in China. He entered the junior high school of the Sichuan Music Academy in 1994.

At thirteen, Li won the prestigious Stravinsky Competition in the United States. Then came the First Prize at the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition held in the United States followed by a Third Prize at the Franz Liszt Piano Competition in the Netherlands. He was also a major winner in the Second China International Piano Competition held in Beijing. But the best was when he won the first prize at the Frederic Chopin Competition held in Warsaw in October 2000. Then he was just eighteen. Throughout the learning carer the tution fees were too high and his could not have afforded it save the numerous scholarships and awards that he kept winning.

Li debuted in the United States at Carnegie Hall, as part of Steinway and Sons' 150th Anniversary Gala in June 2003. The very next month he performed Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1. Li was honoured with a special reception by the Chinese Ambassador to the United States. There he performed for various officials of the US State Department.
