Truly inspirational - and a local lad!I agree, though - Lang Lang sounded a lovely guy.

Cos it's his job. But if you are insinuating that there is anything improper, like for example he got the job playing Chopin on PM because he was the guy that got the BBC off the hook when they said "hack", thus showing what a bunch of pinkos they are.....ooo. sorry. wrong thread.

He played a lot of Chopin although I never took the opportunity to find out what they were called. Every time one of them is featured on the radio or as part of a film or TV programme I am 6years old again.Thank you so much.

I did not know that it was Tom and Jerry that got him started! There are a lot of young piano players in China now. How could he feel that he had to practise for 3 hours after the interview?
