(Newark, New Jersey - July 27, 2015) New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents an evening with an exuberant citizen of the entire world. A classical artist of the first order. Who else but pianist Lang Lang? Catch him in a solo recital in Prudential Hall – a night you’ll never forget. Saturday, September 26, 2015 8:00 PM at Prudential Hall.

Not just anyone in classical music could perform before a worldwide audience of possibly billions at the 2014 World Cup in Rio (with Plácido Domingo) and, a few months later, release an elegant, fluent, to-the-manner-born CD of Mozart piano concertos with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Vienna Philharmonic. Who else but Lang Lang?
The Chinese-born pianist, who will perform works by Bach, Tchaikovsky and Chopin, is a sensation unlike any in the history of classical music, and he has a long and rich relationship with NJPAC. He first played in Prudential Hall as a promising young virtuoso, and he has returned many times for our audiences. Today he is one of the world’s most acclaimed pianists and best-selling classical artists, with an irresistible desire and determination to welcome everyone, everywhere to the embrace of classical music. A serious artist of the first order. An exuberant citizen of the entire world.
Lang Lang performs frequently with others, and most audiences in the U.S. do not know him as a solo recitalist. His program at NJPAC promises to be a musical encounter not to be forgotten. His command of this most refined and elevated repertoire is complete – and, typically, infused with distinctive personality. In Europe, his recitals have the atmosphere of rock concerts. So exciting are they that DVDs have been released of his recitals in Vienna’s Musikvereinsaal, London’s Royal Albert Hall and, earlier, Carnegie Hall in New York.
