Release Date: Monday 15 October 2018
Sony Classical has brought together the most popular piano works recorded by Lang Lang to create 'Piano Magic'.
Heralded by the New York Times as "the hottest artist on the classical music planet," Lang Lang has had an almost unparalleled impact on classical music, whose most notable performances include the Sydney Opera House and Beijing's 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony, watched by billions.
"There are things here to admire. Wherever the music challenges even Lang Lang's tremendous technique - here in particular the three Liszt pieces - one is dazzled by the accuracy, the control of dynamics and the sheer exuberance of it all." BBC Music
