Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

In November 2013 Lang Lang returned to London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall for two recitals that sold out within 48 hours of tickets being released.

This 120 minute film captures the complete recital and offers an opportunity to re-live an unforgettable concert experience.

He finished a celebrated two-part program consisting of Mozart and Chopin with no less than eight encores, breaking Evgeny Kissin's record of encores at the RAH.

The three early Mozart Piano Sonatas have been part of Lang Lang's latest recital which he presented live in more than 200 concerts worldwide - the recordings that were

 Deeply emotional performance September 25, 2016 By Robert Vernon (Etobicoke, ON) See All My Reviews "He certainly plays with a lot of panache, but listening over and over again I was bowled over by the depth of feeling for the works and this is especially true of the Chopin Ballade No 1. This is an unforgettable performance; a thing of great beauty. The encore Scriabin Etude brought out the digital mastery of the keyboard." Report Abuse
