Classical 90.7, KVNO Music Guide

A Looney Tune?

In Uncategorized on August 13, 2012 at 10:10 am

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.

KVNO encourages you to tune in today, during the 10 o’clock hour to listen to Lang Lang’s performances of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Sonata No. 2.

Enlightening, entertaining and informative programs, only on member supported Classical 90.7 KVNO.
