Jeff Spurgeon of New York radio station WQXR-FM will introduce Lang Lang and moderate the discussion portion of the event, after which the pianist will be available to sign copies of his recent recordings — including a new DG release of Beethoven's Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 4, with Christoph Eschenbach conducting the Orchestre de Paris.
Lang Lang will be the New York Philharmonic's featured soloist this week, performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 (the "Emperor") under conductor Riccardo Muti. The program also includes an overture by Cherubini and Hindemith's oratorio Sancta Susanna. Information and tickets are available at www.nyphil.org.
