The Chinese pianist Lang Lang – a wunderkind who became one of the most famous pianists of all time – will be stepping onto a Slovenian concert stage for the first time. His playing is characterised by technical skill and musicality, and he has attracted many young people around the globe to the wonderful world of the piano thanks to his familiarity with many genres. Time magazine in 2009 accordingly included him in its list of 100 most influential people in the world as a global art ambassador. He will join the West–Eastern Divan Orchestra, whose musical creativity brings together musicians from the different cultures of the Middle East, in performing the Andalusian folklore-inspired Nights in the Gardens of Spain by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, under the baton of pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim. The programme, coloured by the music of the Iberian Peninsula, will also include works by the French composer Maurice Ravel, who was born in a town very close to France’s border with Spain. His childhood impressions of this environment will be heard in the famous Boléro and the Spanish Rhapsody, while the orchestra will also play the work Iberia by his older contemporary and friend, the Parisian Claude Debussy. In this work he acoustically depicted the melodic contours of Spanish music, which resided above all in his imagination.
