The New York Times has called master pianist Lang Lang the "hottest artist on the classical music planet." He began playing the piano at age 3, and by the time he was 5 he wowed his first audience at a public recital. Lang Lang's big break came at 17, when he was called on at the last minute to fill in with the Chicago Symphony. Then, in 2008, he mesmerized viewers across the globe with his performance at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies. Now 26, Lang Lang is selling out concert halls all over the world with his electrifying performances.
