The long-awaited and highly anticipated recording of Lang Lang performing Chopin’s Piano Concertos nos. 1 & 2 arrives September 9, 2008. Both concertos are among the most beloved in the repertoire and Lang Lang’s many concert performances frequently receive the highest praise.
Lang Lang is joined by Zubin Mehta and the Vienna Philharmonic in a supreme pairing of talent and temperament. This is sure to become a benchmark recording of these beloved concertos.
Lang Lang has sold over 100,000 CDs in the US alone and will be on tour September to November throughout the US, including many performances of the Chopin concertos.
