Schumann: Arabesque in C Major, op. 18
J.S. Bach: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988

“The hottest artist on the classical music planet.” The New York Times

“In his monumental first movement cadenza, Lang Lang went from elegant delicacy to a ferocious, life-affirming intensity.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

Celebrate world-renowned pianist Lang Lang’s first Santa Barbara appearance in eight years. Fueled by a lifelong passion for one of the most challenging compositions in the repertoire, Lang Lang’s interpretation of Bach’s Goldberg Variations represents a significant milestone in his stellar career. Deeply felt and two decades in the making, Lang Lang’s hyper-expressive performance of this monumental work will provoke powerful reactions and plenty of animated discussion among fans and critics. Reflecting on the process of developing his interpretation, Lang Lang said,“It takes you to another level of thinking.”
