Chinese pianist Lang Lang is one of the most recognized and in-demand classical musicians in the world today. His concerts are usually sold out, and his latest one at the National Indoor Stadium in Beijing on Saturday night was no exception.
It's the first concert held at the National Indoor Stadium since the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. After seeing 11 Olympic gold medals awarded last August, the 26-year-old virtuoso put on another golden performance.
Lang Lang opened with Chopin's Piano Concerto, regarded as something of a challenge for pianists. He was accompanied by the Beijing Symphony Orchestra, led by well-known conductor Tan Lihua.
