Lang Lang, Royal Festival Hall, London
By Richard Fairman

L
ang Lang’s extraordinary rise has given us not just a pianist but also a global brand. The young Chinese musician has become such an aspirational icon in his home country and beyond that his name can be attached to almost anything. The programme for this recital includes an advertisement for Lang Lang caps, gloves, T-shirts and USB sticks.
It is also stamped now on something more serious: education. Having agreed to a week’s residency in London, Lang Lang scheduled not only this recital, a chamber music evening and a pair of concertos, but also a “Massed Piano Day” on Sunday, when 100 young pianists will come together on the stage of the Royal Festival Hall.

If any of them was at Tuesday’s solo recital, they will have found an artist who is himself still in the process of being formed. Having started out as a tyro pianist who could play very fast and very loud (especially very loud), Lang Lang has been facing down his critics by putting into his recitals music that is as far from type as he can find.
The first half opened with a Bach Partita No 1 that was sometimes expressively subtle, sometimes merely a clatter of semiquavers. Then Schubert’s introspective B Flat Sonata really took Lang Lang out of his comfort zone. He started softly, airbrushing the underlying rhythmic motifs almost out of existence, and it was a huge romantic climb from there to his grandiloquent climaxes – more than the music could bear. The classical architecture of the sonata started to crumble and the parts no longer held together.
With the Op 25 set of Chopin’s Etudes afterwards he moved back on to home ground. There were the expected technical fireworks here – piston-like double octaves, right-hand thirds that flashed across the keyboard – and enough expressiveness sometimes to look beyond the notes to the music too. To end, though, his Liszt/Horowitz encore of a Hungarian march arrangement was so hammeringly noisy as to suggest that the Lang Lang brand ought to go on a power drill as well.
