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
