Notes & Reviews:

Superstar pianist Lang Lang's first concerto album on Sony Classical unites the world's greatest international music stars: Lang Lang, conductor Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. This highly anticipated collaboration resulted in a recording which will mark one of this year's most important classical releases. Recorded at Berlin's Philharmonie, the album presents two milestones of the 20th century piano literature: Prokofiev's explosive Piano Concerto No. 3, (one of the great show stoppers in the concert repertoire), and the Bartók Concerto No. 2, probably the most technically challenging piece ever written for piano and orchestra. These pieces showcase Lang Lang and the orchestra's unique and spectacular virtuosity and musicianship and will make any listener's jaw drop.
