Starting off with Lang Lang playing around with “Chopsticks” (remember Marilyn Monroe in 1955’s Billy Wilder’s classic Seven Year Itch ?)
* this mix escalates quickly to higher level of virtuosity with
* new releases from Vansessa Wagner taking on Philip Glass,
* Olga Scheps bringing thunder out of her pianoforte
* and Yu-Chien Tseng, the 10 M$ violin player, playing the most technical Wieniawski piece on a 7 M$ Guarneri Del Gesù violin.
* Before the end of the show, more Lang Lang, more Wanessa Wagner,
* Jazz piano with Sun Ra,
* OST from Max Richeter and Johann Johannsson and Ken Thorne,
* Bach with a piece for organ by Olivier Latry, and the Goldberg Variations by legendary Glenn Gould,
* sweetness with Guillaume Coppola taking on a Debussy favourite,
* more violin virtuosity with South Korean young talent Sueye Park
* ending with some Sitar by Bill Laswell.
