Lang Lang Gala Performance
With the Sydney Symphony

Piano superstar Lang Lang returns to Sydney to play Mozart in a concert conducted by Chief Conductor David Robertson.

Lang Lang is a global phenomenon and a passionate ambassador for classical music, from Carnegie Hall to the Beijing Olympics, and his astonishing technique and irresistible charisma have earned him millions of fans world-wide. Recently he embarked on an exploration of Mozart, in this case the stormy Piano Concerto No.24. As dramatic as any opera, this concerto contrasts singing melodies with darkly dazzling virtuosity.

The two haunting movements of Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony are perfect as they are. It is one of the essential treasures of classical music because of its enigmatic irresolution.

In Rendering Luciano Berio completes Schubert’s sketches for a ‘Tenth’ Symphony but leaves the seams exquisitely exposed, stitching together Schubert’s music with iridescent threads of sound.

‘‘He received an uproarious ovation…  From the start, the teenage girls in my row had planned to rush the stage, which they did. And, as Mr. Lang exited after his final bow, he threw his handkerchief into the crowd. ‘That,’ I heard a woman behind me say, ‘is star power, honey.’ ’’
