Carnegie Hall Presents Pianist Lang Lang in Recital on Friday, October 23
Grammy Award-nominated concert pianist Lang Lang makes his first of three appearances at Carnegie Hall this season with a solo recital on Friday, October 23 at 8:30 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. The concert features Bach’s Italian Concerto, BWV 971—a complex and pioneering work inspired by Vivaldi—along with Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons, Op. 37b and Chopin’s four scherzos. By the time he was 22 years old, the acclaimed pianist had already performed twice at Carnegie Hall —with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra conducted by Yuri Temirkanov in 2001 and with the New York String Orchestra under Jaime Laredo in 2002—before making his sold-out solo recital debut in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage on November 7, 2003, which was recorded live by Deutsche Grammophon.Later this season, Lang Lang joins Carnegie Hall Artist Trustees Martina Arroyo, Emanuel Ax, Renée Fleming, Marilyn Horne, Yo-Yo Ma, Jessye Norman, and James Taylor when he returns to perform for Carnegie Hall’s 125th Anniversary Gala concert on Thursday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage—125 years to the day since Carnegie Hall first opened its doors in 1891. He then joins The Philadelphia Orchestra with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin on Wednesday, May 11 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage for a performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-sharp Minor, Op. 1.
