Notes & Reviews:

New solo album featuring Frédéric Chopin's Scherzi and Peter Tchaikovsky's Seasons. Captures the romance of Paris. Deluxe Edition features a bonus DVD with excerpts from Lang Lang's private recital at the Hall of Mirrors, Versailles Palace. Touring throughout the U.S. this fall.

Lang Lang and Chopin have long been a winning combination, with the 2012 release of The Chopin Album being his most successful Sony album to date. Tchaikovsky has also featured prominently in Lang Lang's career - most notably in his international breakthrough at age seventeen performing Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto at Ravinia's "Gala of the Century." With Lang Lang in Paris (a 2-CD set) the superstar classical pianist combines his love for both composers. Already celebrated worldwide for his Chopin interpretations, Lang Lang selects the four virtuosic and well known Scherzi to display his interpretative ability and renowned technical command. The album also features the rarer Tchaikovsky Seasons, twelve works commissioned by a Russian music magazine in 1875. Lang Lang in Paris is also available on 180-gram vinyl and as a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD that features excerpts from a private recital Lang Lang performed at the stunning Hall of Mirrors at Versailles Palace which will be released as a full-length DVD and Blu-ray later this year.
