The 10th Beijing International Music Festival closed Friday night with a magnificent concert given by Chinese pianist Lang Lang, French conductor Christoph Eschenbach and Orchestra de Paris in Beijing's Poly Theatre.
The classical pieces performed by the artists, including Tchaikovsky's "Piano Concerto No.1 in B flat minor" and Gustav Mahler's "Symphony No. 1 in D major", won thunderous applause from the audience.
Christoph Eschenbach, also Lang Lang's former teacher, played Mozart's "Concerto for Two Pianos No.10 in E flat major" together with Lang Lang.
