Performing on Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala!

Performing on Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala!

What an unbelievable honor to make my Philadelphia Orchestra debut at Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala together with Lang Lang, jazz legend Chick Coera, and Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

– New York Classical Review: “A recent injury to Lang’s left hand, however, necessitated calling in reinforcements, in the person of Maxim Lando, a 14-year-old alumnus of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation who already has considerable international experience playing some of the most challenging works in the piano repertoire. Seated at Lang’s left, young Lando contributed not just Gershwin’s original left-hand part but some witty and stylish two-handed solos, and wasn’t shy about reaching over his mentor’s right hand to make a point in the treble. The applause for the two superstars and the brave young virtuoso was ecstatic.”

– Zealnyc: “This worked shockingly well. In fact, the three pianists—Lang, Corea, and young Mr. Lando—gave a performance of the Rhapsody for the ages. Overall, the three highly individual artists achieved an astounding musical synergy.”

Performing with Lang Lang and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Manfred Honeck!

Words from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: “[Lang Lang] and Maxim intertwined arms and moved as one otherworldly creature, almost unaware of the dance-like quality of the dreamy trance they had put themselves into. It was like watching musical ecstasy, the synergy and magic of the motion captivated the audience from start to the very end of George Gershwin’s masterpiece, “Rhapsody in Blue.” One for the ages, indeed.”
