Lang Lang Goes Chamber

It's rare for the young Chinese pianist Lang Lang to play chamber music. But last month, he joined violinist David Chan (concertmaster of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra) and cellist Hai-Ye Ni (principal cellist of the Philadelphia Orchestra) to play the Piano Trio by Tchaikovsky at Carnegie Hall in New York. Right before that concert, the trio joined Fred Child at the studios of WQXR in New York, to talk about the Tchaikovsky Trio, and to play the dramatic opening movement.
