About This Performance

Internationally acclaimed and award-winning pianist Lang Lang joins Music Director Manfred Honeck to kick-off the 2012-2013 season.  With 2012 as the “Year of the Dragon,” Lang Lang brings you selections from his album of Chinese music Dragon Songs, as well as Liszt’s passionate Piano Concerto No. 1.  Lang Lang’s popularity has taken him to the 2009 list of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World.”  The PSO’s opening night gala concert promises to be an incredible night of music and celebration!
