EXPERIENCE THE LANG LANG EFFECT FOR YOURSELF
Lang Lang has played sold-out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world. He holds the distinction of being the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic, plus all the major American orchestras. Described as the People's Republic's first crossover star, he heralds a new era in music; a huge achievement from his humble beginnings as the son of a vice police officer and a telephone operator.
Witness the 21st century's most influential musician take on Bach's Goldberg Variations, offering his vision of work to the more elusive Bach's. The Goldberg Variations consist of a set of 30 variations first published in 1741.
This young yet eminent classical artist has appeared in Time Magazine's annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World and in 2008, his skills caught the imagination of over four billion people as they watched Lang Lang's performance in the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. Within China, his influence has grown to such an extent that he has inspired over 40 million children to learn to play classical piano - a phenomenon coined as "the Lang Lang effect" by the BBC, which today shows no sign of slowing down.
