Saint-Saëns (2CD)

Lang Lang presents this album a treasure trove of musical discoveries. Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 2 was recorded with the Gewandhausorchester and Andris Nelsons and is for Lang Lang a true romantic masterpiece that rivals the greats like Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.

By pairing it with Carnival of the Animals, a whimsical menagerie that has captivated young hearts for generations, Lang Lang continues his heartfelt wish to promote the love of classical music to kids and this album also gives him a chance to collaborate with his wife, pianist Gina Alice.

Complementing these works with hidden gems – unearth solo compositions by five female French composers as well as beloved French classics, this is a feast for the eyes and ears, promising a captivating experience.
