Lang Lang piano
Lang Lang sets his keyboard on fire with a combination of Spanish rhythms and Lisztian excess: a touchstone for any pianist
Lang Lang, or the lightning ascension of a Chinese child piano prodigy who, in a few years, became one of the most sought-after classical musicians on the planet. Spotted very early by Christophe Eschenbach and approved by Daniel Barenboim, with whom he made his first recording for the international market, the final seal of approval came during his collaboration with Nikolaus Harnoncourt. He was at home anywhere in the world, and mapped out his path as he wished, delivering very personal performances of the major repertoire, from Chopin to Tchaikovsky, on stage or on recordings. For this latest concert, he once again pushes back the boundaries, venturing into Spanish music with several pieces by Albeniz and Granados, two major composers whose rich, original writing could only appeal to this tireless explorer.
For this concert, Lang Lang wanted to be accompanied by young students of the Conservatoire Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart-Canopée (Paris) piano classes.
