Carnegie Hall Live: Lang Lang in Concert

May 30, 2012

Airs Wednesday, May 30 at 11:00 a.m.  The inaugural season of Carnegie Hall Live wraps with one of today's most popular pianists. Lang Lang shows his enormous range, from the delicate textures of Bach to the nearly orchestral sonorities of Schubert. Billions watched his performance at the 2008 Olympics, Time magazine named him one of the most 100 influential people in the world and this Carnegie Hall recital of Bach, Schubert and Chopin is sold out. BUT, with Red River Radio you can have a ticket for this concert by Lang Lang. 
The scheduled program features:

J. S. Bach: Partita No. 1 in B-flat Major, BWV 825
Schubert: Sonata in B-flat Major, D. 960
Chopin: Twelve Etudes, Op. 25

Airs Wednesday, May 30 at 8:00 p.m.  Maggie Koerner will join Bill Beckett & Wally Derleth for a live show featuring music from her debut release. Join us for the rising talent from Shreveport and help us out with your pledge of support at 800-552-8502 or just click here and pledge on line.
