Praised as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet,” Lang Lang displays his mastery of the piano with pieces such as Wagner’s spirited Flying Dutchman overture and Brahms’ extraordinary Fourth Symphony, accompanied by conductor Jun Märkl. After the 8 p.m. performance at Music Hall’s Corbett Tower, join both Lang Lang and CSOEncore for a lively reception celebrating the Chinese New Year. Continue the celebration after the reception at Lunar (435 Elm St., Downtown). Your tickets get you into the VIP Sky Pad for free.
