Heralded by The New York Times as the "hottest artist on the classical music planet," 28-year-old Lang Lang has played sold out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world and is the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic and all the top American orchestras.

"Lang Lang Live In Vienna," recorded in early 2010, is the young pianist's second live recorded recital to date after his 2004 Carnegie Hall performance – which marked his international breakthrough as a recording artist. This mesmerizing solo performance takes place in the stunning Musikverein concert hall, perhaps best known to American audiences for the PBS New Year's concerts of the Vienna Philharmonic.
