Live From Lincoln Center presents the internationally acclaimed pianist Lang Lang and his love letter to New York, the city he considers his adoptive home, set to the music that helped make this city so famous. Embracing a wide range of styles and voices to capture New York’s magic, this episode features music from Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland and Danny Elfman to Lou Reed, Alicia Keys and Don Henley. The night will also include a rare performance of the original 1924 jazz band arrangement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.

Joining Lang Lang will be celebrated artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Suzanne Vega, Jerry Douglas, Lisa Fischer and rising stars including Grammy-nominated singer Andra Day, genre-bending violinist Lindsey Stirling and Grammy-winning trumpeter Sean Jones, in addition to a 30-piece orchestra with musical direction by David Lai. The live concert and television broadcast are produced and directed by Emmy Award-winner Andrew C. Wilk, executive producer of Live From Lincoln Center. | Official Website
