Pianist Lang Lang talks about his career as a musical prodigy. On November 10 at Carnegie Hall he’ll be performing the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2, along with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, as part of the series "Ancient Paths, Modern Voices: A Festival Celebrating Chinese Culture," a tribute to China’s culture and its influence around the world. More information about the series and tickets here.

I highly recommend another NPR interview with Lang Lang from last year, with Tom Ashbrook of On Point:

It's lengthier than this one and Lang Lang offers some more personal, at times painful, insights.

Ha, a classic Lenny Leap: confidently assuming Lang Lang has never been on Leno, and then Lang Lang informing him that he's been on Leno THREE TIMES. So funny.
There's at least one Lenny Leap every show. It's fun to spot them, like "Nina" in a Hirschfeld caricature.
