L to the Power of Three: Lang Lang and Lippert  – what a combination.

We are very pleased to announce that Lippert Music has been invited to participate in Lang Lang’s “101 Pianists Workshop” taking place at Roy Thomson Hall on Sunday November 13.  This is part of Lang Lang’s  personal goal to inspire the next generation of classical music lovers.

Lang Lang (pronounced Long Long) is without a doubt the most exciting classical musician performing today. His technique is legendary, his interpretations of the great classics are always insightful, and he pulls this all off with a degree of showmanship that has not been seen since Horowitz.

And just as importantly, Lang Lang is always very giving of his time, especially with the performed for communities that never see musicians of this caliber in their midst.(For a complete biography please see www.langlang.com ).

Lang Lang is in Toronto on a two week residency with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.During that  time he will perform all of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos. Do whatever you can to see at least one of these concerts – he is an absolute thrill to see. For ticket information please see:
