Celebrated pianist Lang Lang returns to Singapore in a gala concert performance of Prokofiev’s coruscating Third Piano Concerto, a work of great virtuosity and lyricism that has been a staple of the pianist’s repertoire since its rapturously-received premiere in 1921. Music Director Lan Shui will also conduct Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Fifth Symphony.

Heralded as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet” by the New York Times and the “world’s ambassador of the keyboard” by the New Yorker, Lang Lang has played sold out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world and is the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic and all the top American orchestras.

Lang Lang’s success has catapulted him into the world spotlight. In 2008 Lang Lang was featured in concert with jazz pianist Herbie Hancock at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, and performed at the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2009 Lang Lang was featured in TIME's 100 Most Influential People in the World. Most recently, Lang Lang has been chosen as an official worldwide ambassador for the 2010 Shanghai Expo.
