Lang Lang Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lang_Lang_(pianist)
Lang Lang (Chinese: 郎朗; pinyin: Láng Lǎng; born 14 June 1982) is a Chinese concert pianist who has performed with leading orchestras in Europe, the United States and his native China.
Lang Lang was born in Shenyang, Liaoning, China. His father Lang Guoren (郎国任), is a descendant of the Manchu Niohuru (鈕祜祿) family, which brought forth a long line of Qing Empresses. The elder Lang is also a musician, who plays the traditional Chinese stringed instrument erhu. At the age of two, Lang watched the Tom and Jerry episode The Cat Concerto which features the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt. According to Lang, this first contact with Western music is what motivated him to learn piano. He began piano lessons with Professor Zhu Ya-Fen at age three. At the age of five, he won first place at the Shenyang Piano Competition and performed his first public recital.
When Lang Lang was nine years old, he intended to audition for Beijing’s Central Conservatory of Music, and, having difficulties with his lessons, was expelled from his piano tutor’s studio for “lack of talent”. Another music teacher at his state school noticed Lang Lang’s sadness, and decided to comfort him by playing a record of Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 10 in C major, K. 330; she asked him to play along with the second movement. This reminded Lang Lang of his love of the instrument. “Playing the K. 330 brought me hope again,” he recalled.
Lang Lang was later admitted into the conservatory where he studied under Professor Zhao Ping-Guo. In 1993, he won the Xing Hai Cup Piano Competition in Beijing and, in 1994, was awarded first prize for outstanding artistic performance at the fourth International Competition for Young Pianists in Ettlingen, Germany. In 1995, at 13 years of age, he played the Op. 10 and Op. 25 études by Chopin at the Beijing Concert Hall and, in the same year, won first place at the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians in Japan, playing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert broadcast by NHK Television. When 14, he was a featured soloist at the China National Symphony’s inaugural concert, which was broadcast by China Central Television and attended by President Jiang Zemin. The following year, he began studies with Gary Graffman at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia
Performing and recording career
Lang Lang has given recitals and concerts in many major cities and was the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic and some top American orchestras. A Chicago Tribune music critic called him “the biggest, most exciting young keyboard talent I have encountered in many a year of attending piano recitals”. Lang has been praised by musicians and critics around the world – the conductor Jahja Ling remarked, “Lang Lang is special because of his total mastery of the piano… He has the flair and great communicative power.” National Public Radio’s Morning Edition remarked that “Lang Lang has conquered the classical world with dazzling technique and charisma.” It is often noted that Lang successfully straddles two worlds – classical prodigy and rock-like “superstar”, a phenomenon summed up by The Times journalist Emma Pomfret, who wrote, “I can think of no other classical artist who has achieved Lang Lang’s broad appeal without dumbing down.”
Lang Lang’s performance style was controversial when he stormed into the classical music scene in 1999. Since that time, Pianist Earl Wild called him “the J. Lo of the piano.”  Others have described him as immature, but admitted that his ability to “conquer crowds with youthful bravado” is phenomenal among classical musicians. His maturity in subsequent years was reported by The New Yorker: “The ebullient Lang Lang is maturing as an artist.” In April 2009, when Time Magazine included Lang Lang in its list of the 100 most influential people, Herbie Hancock described his playing as “so sensitive and so deeply human”, commenting: “You hear him play, and he never ceases to touch your heart.”
In 2001, after a sold-out Carnegie Hall debut with Yuri Temirkanov, he travelled to Beijing with the Philadelphia Orchestra on a tour celebrating its 100th anniversary, during which he performed to an audience of 8,000 at the Great Hall of the People. The same year, he made an acclaimed BBC Proms debut, prompting a music critic of the British newspaper The Times to write, “Lang Lang took a sold-out Royal Albert Hall by storm… This could well be history in the making”. In 2003, he returned to the BBC Proms for the First Night concert with Leonard Slatkin. After his recital debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Berliner Zeitung wrote: “Lang Lang is a superb musical performer whose artistic touch is always in service of the music”.
Lang Lang was the featured soloist on the Golden Globe winning score of The Painted Veil and can be heard on the soundtrack of The Banquet. He has recorded for the Deutsche Grammophon and Telarc labels.. His album of the first and fourth Beethoven piano concertos with the Orchestre de Paris and Christoph Eschenbach debuted at No. 1 on the Traditional Classical Billboard Chart. In 2008, he was the pianist on Mike Oldfield’s 2008 album Music of the Spheres. In 2010, he signed with Sony for a reported $3 million.
In December 2008, Lang Lang partnered with Google and YouTube in the project YouTube Symphony Orchestra.
Lang Lang has also recorded piano works for the video game Gran Turismo 5’s soundtrack, mostly under the “Classical” subgenre. This included versions of Danny Boy, Beethoven’s 8th Piano Sonata, and one of the game’s intro pieces, the third movement from Prokofiev’s 7th Piano Sonata.
Finally, he has performed for numerous international dignitaries including the former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, President Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, President Hu Jintao of China, President Horst Köhler of Germany, Prince Charles, as well as Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Polish President Lech Kaczynski.
White House state dinner
At the White House state dinner in honour of President of China Hu Jintao on 19 January 2011, one of the tunes Lang played was the theme song to the movie Battle on Shangganling Mountain called My Motherland, an anti-American film on the Korean War. The song’s lyrics include the line “We deal with wolves with guns”, which in the film referred indirectly to the United States. Although the tune is popular and has lost much of its political and historical significance in China, the performance was said to be interpreted by some as insulting the USA.
In response to the controversy Lang Lang denied that he had intended to insult the United States. He later released a statement stating that he “selected this song because it has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. It was selected for no other reason but for the beauty of its melody.” White House spokesperson Tommy Vietor also responded by saying My Motherland is “widely known and popular in China for its melody. Lang Lang played the song without lyrics or reference to any political theme ….Any suggestion that this was an insult to the United States is just flat wrong…

Late Rent 19th Year in Jazzkeller Hofheim – Thanks to all the folks who came to hear us play 19th consecutive year musikmesse-Session! – Jon Hammond Band – Jazzkeller Hofheim
musikmesseesession mit Jon Hammond
Fr 17. April 2015
Schon traditionell findet bei uns zur Frankfurter musikmesse ein Treffen hochkarätiger Musiker statt. Wie auch in den vergangenen Jahren ist der aus New York stammende Orgelspieler Jon Hammond, mit Joe Berger „Berger-meister“, Peter Klohmann und Giovanni Gulino, angesagt. Im Spiel geht Jon Hammond absolut in seiner Musik und seiner Leidenschaft für den guten alten Hammond-Sound auf.
Mit 18 Jah-ren kaufte er sich seine erste Hammond B3 und tourte mit der Rockband Hades im Vorprogramm von Tower Of Power oder Michael Bloomfield. Der Gitarrist Joe Berger gleicht einem Saiten-Hasardeur. Er spielte bereits mit Who-Bassist John Entwistle und sorgte in dessen Band für den Studiomix. Peter Klohmann ist ein junger talentierter Tenorsaxophonist. Giovanni Totò Gulino ziseliert an den Becken, setzt Akzente auf der Fußtrommel und spielt leichte, luftige Melodien auf der Snare.
