It’s the Chinese star and a 12 year-old kid having a crack at the crazy Turkish version of Rondo alla Turca.

Mozart will never sound the same.

Fazil forever.lang lang fazil say

    I’m sure the No Fun Police will be here soon to rain on all the fun, but this is so great to watch and listen to.

  • CDH says:

    Oh, Susannah….!

  • Antonio says:

    Kid is much better…

  • Robert Holmén says:

    A Marxist interpretation. Chico Marx.

  • Olaugh Turchev says:

    Maxim Lando is really fun. Who is the other guy?

  • albert landa says:

    Lang Lang’s contribution was stupid and only succeeded in detracting from the refined musicality and quality sound of Maxim Lando,Lang Lang’s explosive,ugly sounds were just stupid and egoistic. Naturally.

  • Martin says:

    Lang Lang should stick to Chopin. The only recital of him I ever enjoyed was a Chopin only one. Not sure if that was his playing though or the lateness of the night.

    Didn’t go back to hear classical music live after I saw him in a concerto in Glasgow, despite I lived steps away from the concert halls at the time. I bet if I heared pretty much any other pianist that night, I’d have been back many times.

    Fortunately a few years later I started listening to musicians, not marketing tools.

    Ugly and vulgar.

  • Iain Scott says:

    Nearly a day before the no fun police caught up on this one!

  • David says:

    Great fun watching Lang Lang and young Maxim Lando. Thank you!
