Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I do believe Lang Lang is one of the most outstanding pianists of our time." This was the reaction of composer Tan Dun upon hearing Lang's interpretation of his 'Eight Memories in Watercolor,' and it's how most listeners react after first encountering this remarkable young artist's dynamic brand of pianism. Lang performed the Tan Dun piece, along with works by Schumann, Haydn, Schubert, Chopin, and Liszt, on November 7, 2003, as part of his debut recital in New York City's venerable Carnegie Hall. This well-documented double-disc set effectively conveys the vibrancy of that concert.
Lang is a firebrand with the soul of a poet. One minute he'll unleash an astonishing display of pyrotechnics as in his breathtaking account of Liszt's
Read more 'Reminiscences de Don Juan (Mozart)' and the next he'll melt hearts with sumptuously expressive playing as in Chopin's Nocturne in D Flat Major or Schumann's "Traumerei." Lang pays homage to his culture not only through his inclusion of the Tan Dun composition in the program, but also with the encore suite 'Horses,' a duet with his father who performs on the erhu, a traditional Chinese bowed instrument. This album should contribute greatly to Lang's already considerable reputation. Read less
