The Program

He’s a rock star of the piano, a man with the skill of Mozart and the charisma of Bono. And his audiences are commensurate. One of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, Lang Lang has performed with Metallica at the Grammys, blown away billions with Placido Dominago at the 2014 World Cup, and reached nations across the world as the Recording Academy’s Cultural Ambassador to China. But it’s his dedication to the great composers that prompted Financial Times to declare him “evangelical in his efforts to spread the popularity of classical music.” During his long-awaited return to New Jersey, the young virtuoso treats the house to an intimate solo performance of three classics.

  • Bach—Italian Concerto: Throughout this three-movement piece, originally composed for the harpsichord, Bach imitates the effect of an ensemble through a contrasting back and forth. The first movement, which is light and lively, transforms into a pensive second before returning to a jubilant cascade of keys in the third.
  • Tchaikovsky—The Seasons: To everything, there is a season, and to every season, there is a sound. Thanks to Tchaikovsky’s solo piano suite—a set of 12 character pieces, each of which highlights a different month of the Gregorian calendar—listeners can immerse themselves a whole year’s worth of temporal interpretations.
  • Chopin—The Four Scherzos: A light-hearted piece plucked from a larger movement, the scherzo continues to take multiple forms in the classical world, particularly in Chopin’s compositions. While his fourth scherzo is his sunniest, his first three contain more dramatic elements—mournful minor chords, larger-than-life scales, regal marches, and a section that demands the pianist storm off the stage in tears.

New Jersey Performing Arts Center

New Jersey Performing Arts Center stands firm as a bastion of live entertainment, opening the doors to its two distinct venues for a wide array of productions. Inside Prudential Hall, 2,700 seats fill the multitiered auditorium where ballets, symphony orchestras, and Broadway shows flourish beneath radiant lights and a domed ceiling. Victoria Theater, meanwhile, beckons visitors to its more intimate 500-seat confines for jazz concerts and contemporary dance performances.
