Lang Lang, which means “Brilliance of the Sky”, is a Chinese concert pianist, who was inspired at the age of two by the Tom and Jerry episode, “Cat Concerto”, featuring the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt. He began piano lessons at the age of three, winning first place in a piano competition at age five.
Now in his thirties, Lang Lang is known world wide for his concert performances. In 2008, he launched the Lang Lang International Music Foundation in New York to enrich the lives of children through a deeper understanding and enjoyment of classical music. He has done much to encourage children and young musicians to take an interest in classical music through his foundation.

Howard Hanson, Nebraska’s native son from Wahoo, will be featured tonight during “Nocturnes with Clifford Jones.” Hanson, not only a composer and conductor, was director of the Eastman School of Music for 40 years. As Eastman’s director, he established a high quality school, providing opportunities for commissioning and performing American classical music. Hanson’s legacy of service to American music lives on in the Hanson Institute for American Music at the Eastman school, directed by Hanson until his death.
Tonight, at 10 p.m., tune to KVNO to listen to not only Hanson’s Symphony No. 1, “Nordic”, directed by the composer himself, but also Richard Strauss’ “Death and Transfiguration”, both in their entirety.
