WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Heralded as the "hottest artist on the classical music planet" by the New York Times and the "world's ambassador of the keyboard" by the New Yorker, Lang Lang has played sold out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world. He has appeared in Time Magazine's annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World and in 2008, over four billion people viewed Lang Lang's performance in the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. In July 2012 he carried the Olympic torch in London prior to the opening of the 2012 London Games. His influence has inspired over 40 million Chinese children to learn to play classical piano - a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as "the Lang Lang effect."
Following his sold-out Beethoven Piano Concerto cycle in 2012, the Royal Albert Hall is delighted to welcome back Lang Lang for an exclusive recital of Mozart and Chopin, performed in-the-round.
