Lang Lang: Beyond Chopin
Lang Lang delivers in his newest release: The Chopin Album, on the Sony Classical label. When I met him several years ago he was being hailed as a great find, but he was also stretching out to young people as an ambassador for UNICEF. A big heart and a big talent, neither of which has diminished, spurs Lang Lang on to perform a special one-night concert on Tuesday October 30th at 6:30 p.m. at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium.
The objective: to raise funds for the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. A stellar line-up of guests includes emcee Alec Baldwin, violin virtuoso Joshua Bell, jazz great Dee Dee Bridgewater, and some surprise guests to be announced. Information about the October 30th concert.
