Quintessences of Romantic Piano Music

As a pianist, music mediator and philanthropist, Lang Lang is one of the most important cultural ambassadors of our time. He performs with enthusiasm both in front of an audience of billions and in smaller circles, for example in schools. The New York Times called him »the most sensational artist on the classical music scene«.

In this concert, Lang Lang presents two of the most popular works of Romantic piano literature, Franz Schubert's lyrical and dreamy Impromptu in G flat major D 899/3 and Robert Schumann's eight fantasies for piano »Kreisleriana«, alongside a selection of mazurkas by Frédéric Chopin, who devoted himself almost exclusively to the piano not only as a performer but also as a composer, and embodies the Romantic piano tradition like probably no other. 

Schumann himself named the »Kreisleriana« first among the »piano compositions that I consider my best«. He dedicated the piano cycle, inspired by E. T. A. Hoffmann's tales about the quaint romantic art figure of the whimsical Kapellmeister Kreisler, to Chopin, whom he admired greatly. The Polish composer of the same age wrote a total of 57 mazurkas for piano, which, although inspired by Polish folk music and in particular the folk dance of the same name, are of a completely unique, more ornate character, and with these he shaped a new musical genre.
