Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: Lang Lang plays Tchaikovsky

Lang Lang Courtesy of the artist

Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 might be the most popular piece of classical music from the last century and a half. And on Tuesday's Performance Today, we'll hear it played by Lang Lang, who just might be the most popular classical pianist on the planet at the moment.
