Lang Lang v Yundi Li

Went to their concerts within a week. Lang Lang's was on Tuesday 24th and Yundi's on 26th Thursday.

Although they did slightly different things (recital vs piano concerto) but they have so much in common. Lang Lang did K330 of Mozart and Yundi also did it as encore. It's necessary for marketing because they both have this Sonata in their recent album release.

Lang Lang's K330 wasn't too good because the piano was out of tune. In the second half the piano was fixed and he was alive again. Lang Lang delivered 7 little pieces more as encore and the pieces by Schuman were very nice, may be something that I could try and manage.

Both of them will be 24 in the year of the dogs.
