Vancouverites were absolutely thrilled as Lang Lang made his long awaited and highly anticipated return to the city to perform compositions by Mozart on the Steinway D Concert Grand.

 

It was a sold-out evening at the Orpheum Theatre, as Lang Lang, having recently concluding his exciting “101 Pianists” recital, took center stage alongside the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, with Bramwell Tovey conducting.

 

Lang Lang captivated his audience with his spectacular and challenging interpretation of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major.

 

One piece simply wasn’t enough for his encore performance. The audience was delighted when he played two more selections, which included Mozart’s Alla Turka, and Seaweed Dance, a piece from the Chinese Ballet, “Mermaid”.

 

After the performance, Lang Lang met with some of his most passionate fans to sign autographs.

 

It was a truly memorable evening and we can’t wait for him to perform here again!
