Originally Aired: Wednesday, November 10, 2021
Classical superstar Lang Lang stops by the studio to discuss his new recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations with WQXR Morning Host Jeff Spurgeon. In this interview, the piano virtuoso will reveal why he chose to release both a live and studio recording of this iconic work, and play some excerpts from the Variations including No. 1, No. 25, and No. 30.
The New York Times lauds pianist Lang Lang for his “passionate playing and astounding technique.” Winning international acclaim while still in his teens, Lang Lang sold out Carnegie Hall before he was 20. He’s since performed at every major concert hall throughout the world. Lang Lang is also a regular guest at WQXR’s Greene Space.
