Extractions: There is plenty of young talent today on several continents plying the waters of European masters before eager audiences. However, Lang has caught the world's imagination, perhaps in part because Chinese pianists are rare, but also because he is so young 20 something and so wildly talented. Exuberant too. He made his local debut two years ago on the UW President's Piano Series at Meany Hall, returning in the fall to play with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Lang made an enormous impression. So it was not surprising his recital Tuesday night at Meany Hall sold-out well in advance. There was a buzz inside the hall and one outside where people stood anxiously waiting for a returned ticket. Wearing a midnight blue silk jacket, in a Chinese style, Lang did not disappoint. He had his customary verve, astonishing speed, power and ready command. Boldness was coupled with reserve and thundering fortes with delicate pianos. As committed as he is to flamboyance and awesome technical displays, he does not mistake bravura for musicianship.

Extractions: Kontrasterende til dette, og fra en ganske annen tidsepoke er Tan Dun´s impresjonistiske klanger i Eight Memories in Watercolor, opus 1. fra 1978-79. I dette verket viser Lang Lang at han også forstår nutidig musikk, og har evnen å formulere dette i en tidsriktig ramme At man har valgt å sette disse to verkene opp mot hverandre også på CD´en, gir denne dobbelt Cd en ekstra spennvidde. Disse 8 må stykker var inspirert av folkesange og kultur fra Langs tidlige barndom, og gjenkalder en periode hvor den voldsomste periode av Kultur Revolusjonen i Kina begynte å ebbe ut og vestlig musikk ikke lenger ville bli fordømt. Denne dobbelte Cd gleder også lytterne med Franz Liszt Store Don Juan Fantasie etter Mozarts opera, dette er et fyrverkeri. Som blir etterfulgt av Schumanns nensomme Träumerei flotte kontraster, derpå kinesisks musikk igjen, kort og delikat sammen emd faren til Lang, som spiller på ertu. CD´en slutter med Franz Liszt Liebestraum.

Of course the virtuoso elements are covered brilliantly, but I found this to be an annoying performance as perverse in its own way as was Igor Pogorelich's now deleted DG recording with Abbado conducting. Mendelssohn's concerto, which also has been in Lang's repertory for many years, fares better; there is plenty of facile note-spinning, but there are many other recordings that bring more meaning to the music, notably those by Perahia, Serkin, Hough and Thibaudet.
