03/06/2008 Lang Lang Concert 郎朗鋼琴演奏會
"Lang Lang is a marvel, his ease of virtuosity astonishing, his stage presence magnetic." - The Times (London). One thing is certain – his is a prodigious talent. The young Chinese pianist Lang-Lang made a dramatic entrance onto the world stage in 1999. The Chicago Symphony had asked him at the last minute to replace an ailing Andre Watts. His emotional exuberance and technical mastery that night quickly made him one of the most heralded new classical performers; and he was only seventeen years old. As of 2007, Lang-Lang has performed with most of the major orchestras of the world.
