Lang Lang (Chinese: 郎朗; pinyin: Láng Lǎng) (born June 14, 1982) is a Chinese pianist.



Early life
He was born in Shenyang of Manchu ancestry. When he was only two years old, he saw Tom playing piano in The Cat Concerto, a Tom and Jerry cartoon on TV (Tom was attempting the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in C-sharp minor composed by Franz Liszt). According to Lang Lang, this first contact with Western music is what motivated him to learn piano. He began lessons with Professor Zhu Ya-Fen at age three. At the age of five, Lang won the Shenyang Piano Competition and performed his first public recital.

When he was nine years old, Lang Lang was nearing his audition for Beijing's Central Conservatory of Music, but he had difficulties with his lessons, and was expelled from his piano tutor's studio for lack of talent. His music teacher at his state school noticed Lang Lang's sadness, and decided to comfort him by playing a record of Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 10 in C Major, K. 330; she asked him to play with the slow movement. This reminded Lang of his love of the instrument. "Playing the K. 330 brought me hope again," recalled Lang.

Lang was admitted into the Conservatory, studying under Professor Zhao Ping-Guo. In 1993, Lang won the Xing Hai Cup Piano Competition in Beijing, being awarded first prize for outstanding artistic performance at the Fourth International Young Pianists Competition in Germany the next year. In 1995, at 13 years of age, he played the Op. 10 and Op. 25 Chopin Etudes, at Beijing Concert Hall and, in the same year, won first place at the Tchaikovsky International Young Musicians' Competition in Japan, playing Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert broadcast by NHK Television. At 14 he was a featured soloist at the China National Symphony's inaugural concert, which was broadcast by CCTV and attended by President Jiang Zemin. The following year he began studies with Gary Graffman and Dick Doran at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia.

Performing and recording career
See also: Lang Lang discography
Lang Lang has played sold out recitals and concerts in many major cities and is the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic and the top American orchestras.[citation needed] A Chicago Tribune music critic called him "the biggest, most exciting young keyboard talent I have encountered in many a year of attending piano recitals". Lang Lang has garnered praise from musicians and critics around the word - the conductor Jahja Ling remarked, “Lang Lang is special because of his total mastery of the piano... He has the flair and great communicative power.” National Public Radio's Morning Edition remarked that "Lang Lang has conquered the classical world with dazzling technique and charisma." It is often noted that Lang Lang successfully straddles two worlds - classical prodigy and rock-like "superstar", a phenomenon summed up by London Times journalist Emma Pomfret, who wrote, "I can think of no other classical artist who has achieved Lang Lang's broad appeal without dumbing down."

Lang Lang's performances have also been criticized. His performance style has been referred to as having "soggy rhythms and heavy phrasing." and as being "truly boring", "just bad" and "unendurable". Critics who feel that his playing is vulgar and lacks sensitivity have given him the nickname "Bang Bang". Others have described him as immature, though praised his ability to "conquer crowds with youthful bravado". Conversely, the same style has led his performance to be described as one of "blazing speed and thunderous power... Lang's daredevil tendencies found a gratifying outlet." Some critics have argued that Lang is at his best playing the Classical repertoire as opposed to Romantic composers such as Chopin. However, his growth in recent years has also been noted in The New Yorker: "the ebullient Lang Lang is maturing as an artist."

Lang Lang is well known for his exaggerated mannerisms and facial expressions while playing piano, which has affected his recent performances, such as that of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in C-sharp Minor and Réminiscences de Don Juan. This has received criticism, though others have defended his displays, arguing "[Lang's] interpretations aren't just expressions of feeling but the feelings themselves." His "kinetic display" has also been described as "fun to watch", because "underneath the gymnastics, there's clearly some serious musical thinking going on."

In 2001 he made his sold-out Carnegie Hall debut with Yuri Temirkanov, travelled to Beijing with the Philadelphia Orchestra on a tour celebrating its 100th anniversary, during which he performed to an audience of 8,000 at the Great Hall of the People, and made an acclaimed BBC Proms debut, prompting a music critic of the British newspaper The Times to write, "Lang Lang took a sold-out Royal Albert Hall by storm... This could well be history in the making". In 2003, he returned to the BBC Proms for the First Night concert with Leonard Slatkin. After his recital debut in the Berlin Philharmonic, the Berliner Zeitung wrote: "Lang Lang is a superb musical performer whose artistic touch is always in service of the music".

Lang Lang is featured soloist on the Golden Globe winning score of The Painted Veil composed by Alexandre Desplat and can be heard on the soundtrack of The Banquet composed by Tan Dun. Lang Lang records exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon, and every CD he has made has entered the top classical charts as well as many pop charts around the globe. His album of the First and Fourth Beethoven Piano concertos with L’Orchestre de Paris and Maestro Christoph Eschenbach debuted at #1 on the Classical Billboard Chart.

Lang Lang has performed for numerous international dignitaries including the former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, President Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, President Hu Jintao of China, President Horst Koehler of Germany, Prince Charles, as well as Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
