The Knight Masterworks Classical Music season closes with the return of the piano phenom Lang Lang.
Few artists can claim to have as profound an impact on the world of music as Lang Lang. As a pianist, educator and philanthropist, as well as an influential ambassador for the arts, he has fully embraced new technology and innovation, leading the way in bringing classical music into the 21st century. Equally happy playing for billions of viewers at the 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony in Beijing or for a few hundred children in a public school, he is a master of communicating through music.
Lang Lang will devote his 2022 program to Bach’s monumental “Goldberg” Variations, an enigmatic score composed by Bach for the harpsichord in 1743 that has challenged pianists ever since. Built on a single, simple tune, it is a set of 30 kaleidoscopic variations that is considered among the most ambitious and fascinating scores a pianist can bring to life.
Lang Lang is part of an exciting lineup of international superstars in our classical music series. Subscribe today to guarantee your seat!
