Lang Lang, heralded as the "hottest artist on the classical music planet," is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Monday, February 24th!
Heralded as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet” by The New York Times, Lang Lang has played sold-out concerts in every major city in the world and is the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Vienna, Berlin and New York Philharmonic orchestras. Time magazine named Lang Lang in the “Time 100,” citing him as a symbol of the youth of China and its future. Lang Lang is cultural ambassador for Shenzhen and Shenyang. And if the Chinese passion for piano isn’t solely due to him, he has played no small part as a role model – a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as "the Lang Lang effect." Steinway Pianos for the first time named a model after a single artist when they introduced “The Lang Lang Piano” to China, specially designed for education.
