    Mazel Tov!

  • Dan oren says:

    What’s a French wedding ?

    • Wedding Banquet says:

      A “French wedding” nowadays is a tacky wedding for rich Chinese. True to form, Lang Lang’s wedding is as tasteless and tacky as his piano playing.

      • Dan oren says:

        I still don’t get it: in what way is it different from any other wedding ?

        • John Rook says:

          I know what a French garden is, but as for a French wedding, well, maybe Mr. Lebrecht needs to enlighten us.

      • Maria Jette says:

        The catty remarks here at Slipped Disc are really sickening, and the fact that they’re made in this cowardly anonymous manner makes them even more disheartening. This is a perfect example, “Wedding Banquet.” Your remark would be infuriating if it weren’t so obviously coming from a sad and disturbed person. Why did you make it?

      • jytte says:

        Lang Lang isn’t playing classical composers. He is playing Lang Lang. The speed is prestissimo to impress the public. (How sad)

      • Franz List says:

        Well, well…… jalous does not ‘sound’ good, hope you feel better tomorrow

  • John Rook says:

    Yes, that’s a very French garden. Lots of clumping green topiary and virtually no colour.

  • Wanda says:

    Congrats to Lang Lang’s new beard.

  • Good luck to the new couple!

  • Mark says:

    For some strange reason, I am thinking of beards …

  • anon says:


    (There go all my preconceptions!)

  • Patrick says:

    It was a marriage of convenience…they can share make-up.

  • anonymous says:

    For some strange reason, I am thinking of Leonard Bernstein…

  • Wladek says:

    It will give the snarky nobodies a chance to aim their cheap
    shots at him . Give him his day and let go the dreary pot
    shots or is that too civilized .

    • terry vliet says:

      Thank you, Wladek. Civility is the one thing lacking from most of the regular respondents on Slipped Disc.

  • Bruce says:

    Well that’s lovely. Congratulations!

  • Carol says:

    Why is Norman Lebrecht so mean? You can say whatever you want about someone’s playing because you are a music critic. But now taking digs at a musician’s personal life? That’s not tasteful.

    Also, it’s clear that you were giving a jab even if you didn’t spell it out, so no excuses here.
