Lang Lang, piano
Christoph Eschenbach, conductor
with the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra

Each year, 100 of the world’s finest musicians are handpicked through a rigorous auditioning process to join this extraordinary orchestra, and participate in one of Europe’s most important classical music festivals, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. Taking up residence at the Festival’s Orchestra Academy, which was founded by Leonard Bernstein in 1987, these musicians receive an unparalleled opportunity to study and perform with some of the most important names in classical music. Under the remarkable leadership of Maestro Christoph Eschenbach and in its first tour of the United States, the orchestra performs a program that includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 and Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 1. Virtuoso pianist Lang Lang joins the orchestra to perform Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The New York Times dubbed Lang Lang the “hottest artist on the classical music planet,” and the San Francisco Chronicle raved, “Lang Lang’s playing is effortlessly sparkling and dramatic, full of showmanship and excitement.”
