Join WQXR for a very special night of live music and conversation as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet” (The New York Times) returns to The Greene Space.
Lang Lang opens up about the inspiration behind his much-anticipated new solo project, Piano Book, his first studio album in three years. He’ll also discuss the ambitious education projects he is overseeing through his Foundation, and the personal journey that has brought him this far.
Alongside intimate performances of some of the best-loved piano music of all time, Lang Lang will be in conversation with WQXR’s Creative Director, Clemency Burton-Hill.
