He's the lastest icon in China. Children & adults adore him. He's the pride of the Chinese people. He's Lang Lang (郎朗), the classical pianist who has entertained China and gained much acclaim since his first public recital at the age of 5. Borned in 1982 (that makes him a mere 27-year old), Lang Lang was originally from Shenyang. He's Manchurian & was an invited performer at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  It has been noted that "Lang Lang has demonstrated an extraordinary ability to connect with audiences on a personal level and established himself as one of the most exciting artists of our time". Some likes him, some don't. In China, he's pretty much revelled though.
 



What I do like about Lang Lang is the fact that he inspires many with hopes of becoming a classical pianist (& having been the child of a piano teacher, I can attest that is the most difficult thing in life)! There may be many musicians who are considered superior to him in terms of techniques, but a piece of music is a better composition when it inspires and excites. Lang Lang has a way with kids and that's his major contributions to classical music (although definitely not the only one)! If every kids can be inspired to learn classical music, then a good writer can inspire children to write good literature too! That to me is the essence of being good and being talented!

Lang Lang (Chinese: 郎朗) (born June 14, 1982) is a Chinese (Manchu ethnicity) pianist from Shenyang in Liaoning province, China.

Lang Lang has played sold out recitals and concerts in many major cities and is the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic and the top American orchestras.[citation needed] He has inspired over 35 million Chinese children to learn classical piano – a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as "the Lang Lang effect."[6] TheChicago Tribune's music critic called him "the biggest, most exciting young keyboard talent I have encountered in many a year of attending piano recitals".[7] Lang Lang has garnered praise from musicians and critics around the word - the conductor Jahja Ling remarked, “Lang Lang is special because of his total mastery of the piano... He has the flair and great communicative power.”[8] National Public Radio's Morning Edition remarked that "Lang Lang has conquered the classical world with dazzling technique and charisma."[9] It is often noted that Lang Lang successfully straddles two worlds - classical prodigy and rock-like "superstar", a phenomenon summed up by London Times journalist Emma Pomfret, who wrote, "I can think of no other classical artist who has achieved Lang Lang's broad...
