New video: Lang Lang ….’I’m playing in the rain’

Here’s what he writes:

I had an incredible experience playing an outdoor concert at “West Lake” in Hangzhou (Eastern China). Halfway through the concert, it began pouring rain and a tarp was brought out to cover the piano and me. The crowd got soaked but they stayed and cheered me on through the concert and several encores. I actually loved playing in the rain and was inspired by the beauty of nature and the crowd’s perseverance.

On this video: Liszt’s “La Campanella”, Chopin’s Waltz and Chopin’s “Ocean” Etude (very fitting!!)


Next year, he can play at Wimbledon.lang lang rain

    If classical music has a future it will increasingly be in China, Korea and Japan.
