Lang Lang plays Mozart Sonatas and Chopin Ballades
Royal Albert Hall
Thank you for your understanding.
In 2013, Chinese superstar pianist Lang Lang took Royal Albert Hall by storm with an in-the-round solo recital on one of the world’s most famous stages. The concert featured Mozart Sonatas No. 5 in G Major, No. 4 in E-flat Major, and No. 8 in A Minor, and Chopin’s Four Ballades, followed by a stunning series of encores including Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca, Schumann’s Davidsbündlertänze No. 5, Chopin’s Nocturne Op. 55, No. 2, and finishing with a breathtaking interpretation of Scriabin’s Étude Op.8 No. 12 in D-sharp Minor. In this performance brimming with “instances of jaw-dropping virtuosity” (The Guardian), Lang Lang once again proved himself worthy of being described as “the hottest artist on the classical music planet” (The New York Times).
