The 38th FIMC has the honour of bringing for the first time to the Canary Islands Lang Lang, "the hottest artist on the classical music planet", according to the New York Times. As a pianist, educator and philanthropist, as well as an influential ambassador for the arts, Lang Lang has become one of the world's most committed musicians in the 21st century.
Lang Lang plays sold-out concerts all over the world. He has formed ongoing collaborations with conductors including Sir Simon Rattle, Gustavo Dudamel, Daniel Barenboim and Christoph Eschenbach and performs with all the world’s top orchestras. His performances at the Grammy Awards with Metallica, Pharrell Williams or jazz legend Herbie Hancock were watched by millions of viewers.
For about a decade Lang Lang has contributed to musical education worldwide. In 2008 he founded the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. In 2013 Lang Lang was designated by the Secretary General of the United Nations as a Messenger of Peace focusing on global education.
Lang Lang started playing the piano aged three, and gave his first public recital at the age of five. He won the International Tchaikovsky Competition at the age of 13. His big break came when he was seventeen. He had to substitute André Watts at the Gala of the Century and played Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Christoph Eschenbach: he became an overnight sensation and the invitations started to pour in.
Lang Lang’s boundless drive to attract new audiences to classical music has brought him tremendous recognition as a recipient of prizes and distinctions by institutions from all over the world. He has also performed for numerous international dignitaries, including several US presidents or Pope Francis.
