Season 30, Episode 4 New York Philharmonic and Lang Lang: A Night of Firsts

First Aired: September 22, 2005

Pianist Lang Lang performs Chopin's First Piano Concerto in a New York Philharmonic program that also includes Mahler's First Symphony. Lorin Maazel conducts the concert, which opens with the romantic 1830 Chopin concerto (composed at age 20). Mahler's sprawling and at times bombastic symphonic poem (the “Titan”), follows a hero's life. Finished in 1888, it's filled with inventive melodies, both original and borrowed.
