Piano Concerto for Ten Pianists at the Olympics in Beijing

International concert pianists including Lang Lang, Cyprien Katsaris and Louis Lortie premiered a new piano concerto for ten pianos and orchestra during the Olympic Games in Beijing on August the 20th.

Vladimir Feltsman, Liu Shi-Kun, Joseph Kalichstein, Philippe Entremont and Yin Cheng-zong also performed in this work with the China National Symphony Orchestra under Chen Zuo-huang at the Piano Gala that made a ”Grand Finale” of an evening of solo recitals by each pianist.
Composer Shi-Guang Cui says that the four movement work was inspired by Chinese folk dances and percussion instruments.
The concert was held at Beijing’s new national Centre for the Performing Arts.
