A beautiful duo, both away from and at the piano; watch as classical music’s virtuoso couple treats us to some irresistible Brahms.
There’s surely nothing that quite has the charm of a piano duet – nor the ability to bring a smile.
And there are smiles all around when husband and wife pairing of Lang Lang and Gina Alice Redlinger treated us to an exclusive performance of one of their favourite works for four hands.
In December 2021, the ivory-tickling twosome were in London ahead of a concert performance, and a gala for the Lang Lang International Music Foundation.
Just a short trip away from Classic FM towers in London, is an icon of the piano world: Steinway Hall in Marylebone.
With two top pianists in town, and a whole lot of creative energy flowing, we couldn’t resist taking them to the hall. With cameras rolling, we welcomed them. And they gave us a performance of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 that did not disappoint.
To be honest, it made our jaws drop to the floor.
Watch the full performance at the top of the page.
Such energy, such communication, and such love for the music. Thank you, Lang Lang and Gina Alice – we’ll welcome you back anytime.
