After starting his career with a dazzling debut in Carnegie Hall in 2001 , the prodigy has earned his place among the world's greatest talents, with an aura that now extends far beyond the confines of the classical repertoire. Aged just 32, Lang Lang has become the piano phenomenon of the 21st-century. His worldwide concerts have met with great acclaim, especially his versions of Liszt, who ranks as one of his favourite composers. His extraordinary talent and personality have won the approval of today's greatest conductors. Under the baton of Daniel Baremboim, Gustavo Dudamel and Sir Simon Rattle, he has played to packed houses in the most prestigious recital halls. He is the first Chinese pianist to be brought in by the Philharmonic orchestras in Vienna, Berlin and New York.
A citizen of the world, he has also set up the Lang Lang International Foundation, an institution dedicated to musical education for today's youth. After the massive scale of his concerts at the World Cup in Rio or the closing ceremony of the Grammy Awards, Lang Lang will perform an exceptional recital in the intimate auditorium of the Fondation Louis Vuitton – the perfect setting for his talent, virtuosity and sensitivity. Lang Lang will perform works by Mozart, Chopin, Liszt and Tchaikovsky.
