Lang Lang, piano
Sunday, October 30, 3:00PM
This young pianist has zoomed to international celebrity in a uniquely contemporary way. There has been a whirlwind of talk about Lang Lang in his relatively short career. But the truth of Lang Lang, as with most rapidly maturing artists, is in the hearing. Lang Lang’s emerging triumph may be the way he has withstood the demands of stardom to become a deep and sophisticated musician.
"The ebullient Lang Lang is maturing as an artist … his playing is refined, almost severe. He has an intelligent way of shaping phrases, controlling dynamics, varying articulations ... a captivating performance, the kind that you remember as much for its quiet stretches as for its wow factor.”
—The New Yorker
