Lang Lang, Mozart and Rachmaninoff. A Trio of Geniuses

  • Music, Classical and opera

Time Out says

Another exciting opportunity for classical music fans comes in the form of this concert from superstar pianist Lang Lang, who will perform for the first time with the Barcelona Symphonic and Catalan National Orchestra. At just 33, the Chinese musician – who was inspired to learn how to play the piano after seeing a Tom and Jerry cartoon when he was two – has already had a fantastically stellar career. Highlights include winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians in his mid-teens, being the first Chinese pianist recruited by the Berlin and Viennese Philharmonics, selling out the Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall, and providing music for the soundtrack of the Gran Turismo 5 video game. Renowned for his flamboyant style of playing and accessibility, this concert of works by Mozart and Rachmaninoff is, understandably, being dubbed 'A Trio of Geniuses'. If you can't make it to this concert (or are a really big Lang Lang fan), he'll also give a chamber concert on February 24.
