Lang Lang in Recital

Saturday, February 25 at 8 p.m.

Dubbed the “hottest artist on the classical planet!” by the New York Times, piano superstar Lang Lang inspires millions with his open-hearted, emotive playing. He is equally mesmerizing in intimate recitals or on the grandest of stages – such as the 2014 World Cup concert in Rio, with Plácido Domingo; the 56th and 57th GRAMMY Awards, where he performed with Metallica and Pharrell Williams; or the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where more than four billion people around the world viewed his performance. Free pre-concert lectures will be held at 7 p.m. at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts’ Peacock Education Center, Knight Concert Hall. Tickets range from $85 to $145.
