Lang Lang Takes NYers on a Journey Of "Ancient Paths"
Lang Lang gave three stunning performances at Carnegie Hall’s first Chinese art and cultural festival, “Ancient Paths, Modern Voices.” The three-week festival celebrating Chinese culture, native Chinese artists and featuring events throughout the city runs from October 21 to November 10 .
Lang Lang, 27, was born in China and began playing the piano at age three. He earned international fame at age 17, when he was called on for a dramatic last-minute substitution at the Gala of the Century concert with Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
His music is like a stream of spring flowing out with a soul combined East and West. His performance style reminds me of Tai Chi.
"His fingers move so fast!” audience Vivian Rigney said in amazement.
