"I bring music back to life" says pianist Lang Lang
LONDON (Reuters) - Chinese piano wizard Lang Lang says he brings music back to life. And if sponsorships help his reincarnations reach a younger, hipper audience, he's for them. "It's a very special moment that I try first to connect to the music and be as the bridge between the music which already exists and the piano, and to bring this music again from underground to reality," the 26-year-old Lang told Reuters. "Every time you play a piece it's like you bring a life, a new life, and when the last note finishes it's disappeared." Having a pair of Adidas trainers named for him and Audi cars to chauffeur him around town is not selling out but, for Lang, a way to help keep Mozart and Chopin in the public eye.
