Lang Lang at the Royal Albert Hall
Lang Lang de­livered two mem­or­able per­form­ances on his much-an­ti­cip­ated re­turn to the Roy­al Al­bert Hall in Novem­ber 2013. Set-up as in­ter­na­tion­al co-pro­duc­tion of BFMI, ZDF/3sat and Sony Clas­sic­al / Sony Corp, this re­cord­ing of the pi­an­ist su­per­star is a nat­ive 4K pro­duc­tion. Be­sides that: Lon­don, you nev­er cease to amaze!

Her­al­ded as the “hot­test artist on the clas­sic­al mu­sic plan­et” by The New York Times, Lang Lang show­cased his ex­traordin­ary abil­it­ies at the in­tim­ate in-the-round con­certs.

The first half of the pro­gramme was ded­ic­ated to Moz­art (Son­atas No. 5 in G ma­jor, K283, No. 4 in E flat ma­jor, K282, and No. 8 in A minor, K310); the second half fol­lowed with Chop­in’s Four Bal­lades. Lang Lang has proved him­self to be a mas­ter­ful pi­an­ist nu­mer­ous times be­fore, but in this re­cit­al he sent the audi­ence in­to rap­tures with true show­man­ship qual­it­ies, giv­ing sev­en en­cores after the quite ex­haust­ing pro­gramme. George Hall, writ­ing in his Guard­i­an re­view com­men­ted “Lang Lang’s two-part pro­gramme of Moz­art and Chop­in pieces con­tained some in­stances of jaw-drop­ping vir­tu­os­ity”.

Film Premiere "The Highest Level"
Kino International Berlin, Oct. 16
THE HIGHEST LEVEL fol­lows the pro­duc­tion of a CD at the highest artist­ic level with per­form­ances by Lang Lang, con­duct­or Si­mon Rattle and the Ber­lin Phil­har­mon­ic Or­ches­tra. Earli­er this year, the Ber­lin Phil­har­mon­ic, con­duc­ted by Sir Si­mon Rattle, to­geth­er with Lang Lang, per­formed two of the most dif­fi­cult com­pos­i­tions for pi­ano and or­ches­tra: Pi­ano Con­certo No. 2 by Bela Bar­tok and Pi­ano Con­certo No. 3 by Sergei Prokofiev.
The film, dir­ec­ted by Chris­ti­an Ber­ger, provides the view­er with an ex­clus­ive glimpse in­to the re­cord­ing ses­sions as well as the pre­par­a­tions and the at­tempts to achieve the best mu­sic­al qual­ity.
2013 Summer Season
A Glimpse of Several BFMI Projects
Donna Leon’s Venice
A Musical Walk with Joyce DiDonato
The Amer­ic­an best-seller writer Donna Le­on guides the view­ers to the most beau­ti­ful ven­ues of her Itali­an ad­op­ted city on the trail of baroque mu­sic. She proves to be a cap­tiv­at­ing story-tell­er and a fas­cin­at­ing con­nois­seur of Han­del and Viv­aldi.
As Donna Le­on is very pas­sion­ate about mu­sic, she is truly de­lighted to meet the cel­eb­rated mezzo-sop­rano Joyce DiDonato, who is ac­com­pan­ied by the en­semble Il Pomo d’Oro.
