Lang Lang prowls Salzburg at night.

He’d like you to know.


  • E.R. says:

    Looks like a full moon.

  • MR says:

    Another form of nocturnal adventure are the Nightmarchers of Hawaiian legend, including being associated with music from the percussion family.

  • Bostin'Symph says:

    An evening stroll looks delightful.

  • yodi says:

    Neither weird, nor wolfy, nor prowling…

    What’s weird is NL’s obsession with Lang Lang and Yuja Wang, albeit from very different angles…

    • Ann says:

      That is so true. He shows a very petty side of himself with his constant snarky comments about both of them, especially Lang Lang.

    • NoFan says:

      Don’t try to bundle yuja with the comments on lang lang. With full respect, yuja earned everything by herself without stepping on other people.Lang lang, on the opposite, earned big money by shamelessly lying to parents of piano students, trashing other musicians without lower bounds, and pleasing hard to get support from Chinese government/CCP party.

  • Gustavo says:

    The Salzburger Nockerl were finger-licking good.

  • Jean says:

    Where is Lewis …?

  • IP says:

    On a long lonely stroll with my PR agent.

  • Gerry Feinsteen says:

    millions of kids are learning piano because of him. Nothing wrong with that.

    However, it’s okay if the elites here find him a bit of a black sheep in the classical world; those who recognize this…well, iykyk.

  • Sheila McLaren says:

    Am not at all interested in knowing what Lang Lang does at night – or during any given day.

  • MMcGrath says:

    OK. Now I know. I’ll look for him next week. And for Ms Wang’s most recently discarded article of clothing. What social media crap we must swim through daily.
