Notes & Reviews:

World-renowned pianist LANG LANG turns to the composer who has accompanied him throughout his career on his new release for Sony Classical, THE CHOPIN ALBUM - DELUXE EDITION. The music of Chopin, universally loved for its beauty and communicative power, has long been a dynamic force in Lang Lang's life, propelling him through a number of career-defining experiences. Now, in his 30th-birthday year, Lang Lang records his first album entirely devoted to the great composer's solo piano masterpieces.

THE CHOPIN ALBUM - DELUXE EDITION is a limited CD/DVD set with hardcover book packaging of the original CD plus the bonus DVD "My Life with Chopin." The DVD contains exceptional video material - some of it never-before-seen home videos captured by his parents - which uniquely presents key "Chopin" moments in Lang Lang's life and explains how the composer's music has played an important role in his career.

The Times, October 2012
His Grande Valse Brilliante is brilliant indeed; so are the cascading double sixths in the eighth Ttude in D-flat major...Lang Lang's grin and enthusiasm are genuine: he simply loves playing his piano, communicating the joy of music. Bang Bang and glitter aside, that's not something anyone should knock.

The Independent, 28th October 2012
This album reflects his lifelong love for Chopin, and shows how fresh and individual his take can be...he delivers an exhilarating blend of poetry and power. The accompanying DVD is surprisingly amateurish, but reminds us of the god-given talent he was born with.
