I highly recommend another NPR interview with Lang Lang from last year, with Tom Ashbrook of On Point: http://www.onpointradio.org/2008/08/lang-lang

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.
