Overview

Recorded and filmed in the famed Musikverein, Lang Lang Live in Vienna presents one of today's hottest classical artists in a classic setting. The program features the star pianist's first-ever recording of Beethoven sonatas -- the "Appassionata," a milestone in the piano literature, paired with the composer's youthful C Major Sonata Op. 2, No. 3. Virtuosity of a different order is displayed in Albéniz's impressionistic memories of his native Spain in Book One of Iberia.

The program closes with one of Prokofiev's explosive War Sonatas, the revolutionary Seventh Sonata. Finally, to celebrate the Chopin bicentennial, we hear three encores of the Polish genius's most popular works: the "Aeolian Harp" Etude, the "Heroic" Polonaise in A-flat Major, and the sparkling Grande Valse Brillante No. 2.

One of 2010's most eagerly awaited classical releases, the recording is available in an array of formats: on CD, in a Deluxe CD+DVD Edition, on Vinyl LP, and on DVD and Blu-ray. From the Label
