A long-awaited recording: Lang Lang performs Chopin’s Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2, two of the most beloved pieces in the repertoire. Lang Lang has performed these concertos for many years with many different orchestras before deciding to bring his interpretations into the recording studio. Here he is partnered by the supreme musicianship of the Wiener Philharmoniker and Zubin Mehta, who ensure that the orchestral part is far more than mere accompaniment. Both concertos were recorded in the world-renown acoustic conditions of the Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall, concerto No. 1 in a live-performance and concerto No. 2 in studio conditions.
Lang Lang has frequently received highest praise for his readings of Chopin’s Piano Concertos; their mixture of virtuosic expressiveness and lyrical tone bringing forth some of his most acclaimed performances.
