Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra Christoph Eschenbach, conductor “The hottest artist on the classical music planet” (New York Times), Lang Lang has become the pianist of his generation. The 26-year-old plays sold-out concerts all over the world, and was viewed by over 5 billion people in August 2008 during the Beijing’s Olympics opening ceremony. He comes to play at the Knight Concert Hall in splendid company—with the “awe-inspiring” (Berliner Zeitung) Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra, which was founded just over two decades ago by Leonard Bernstein and is comprised of the world’s finest young musicians under the age of 27. Leading the youthful players is the veteran and widely acclaimed German conductor Christoph Eschenbach, whose music-making is characterized by a “wide-ranging imagination and the fearless taking of interpretative risks” (Playbill).
