The Chinese pianist will play Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K.491, on the opening night of Tanglewood, July 6. Nelsons conducts.

It will be Lang Lang’s first live performance since he was invalided out 15  months ago.

We wish him well.

    Sometimes, after being ill for a while, performers come back wiser than they were before. Let’s hope for the best, because he certainly has the chops to be one of the finest.

  • Sue says:

    He’s back baaaaack.

  • Doug says:

    Now why does that photo remind me of this?


    Same shallow, narcissistic personality, perhaps?

  • anon says:

    Lang Lang brings more people to classical music than Nelsons, Kaufmann, Opolais, and the Boston Symphony, combined.

    Think about that.

    No, really, think about that.

  • DOC Martin says:

    Really if you want to attend a circus show, try Fossetts in Bray Co. Wicklow, otherwise Dinu Lipatti is a hard act to follow eg Chopin Walz b minor op 69 no 2.
