NC Symphony Special: Lang Lang

When: Wed., Feb. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Despite near-constant touring, piano superstar Lang Lang has made only a handful of area appearances. For this performance with the North Carolina Symphony, he tackles Edvard Grieg’s high-flying Piano Concerto, a perfect vehicle for Lang Lang’s muscular (and divisive) brand of virtuosity. The Chicago Tribune famously panned his 2002 performance of this piece; perhaps his interpretation has developed since, as, later in the year, he’ll play it with the Berlin and New York philharmonics. A pair of symphonic works by Tchaikovsky round out the evening. —Dan Ruccia
