Lang Lang: Beyond Chopin

Oct 26, 2012

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. 

David Patrick Stearns looks ahead to an internationally simulcast Philadelphia Orchestra concert featuring the superstar Chinese pianist Lang Lang.
