Philadelphia favorite and Curtis Institute of Music graduate Lang Lang brings his international star power and dazzling virtuosity to Verizon Hall with Mozart’s buoyant Piano Concerto No. 17. A frequent guest with the Fabulous Philadelphians, the Chinese pianist regularly proves why the New York Times has called him “the hottest artist on the classical music planet.”
