Lang Lang Virtuoso Piano Performance

LangLang

  My first piano concert and completely amazed at his performance. His programme consisted of Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 13 in B-flat Major, K.333, Schumann’s Fantasie in C Major Op. 17, six traditional chinese works, Granados’ Goyescas, H.64, and two works from Liszt, Isoldens Liebestod: SchuluBszene aus Tristan und Isolde (not even going to try and pronounce that), and the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 in D-flat Major, S.244/6. The first two songs were long and didn’t really captivate me until the six traditional works. My mom was overly excited and was cheering. haha. She enjoyed that part a lot since those are the only songs she know’s of. His Hungarian Rhapsody left me speechless especially when Ted told me to pay attention to his octaves near the end. DAMN, he’s so…..good. So fast…so precise. T^T It is then when I was reminded of that documentary Ted sent me about concert pianists and when Rubenstein says, “One must have talent. One must be born with talent.” And that is the part where I go, “Damn, I’ll never make it”. ^^;; But anyways, it was an amazing performance. Thanks Ted! (:
