feel the power of music

from Lang Lang's piano performance

Of the piece, Lang Lang
“For me it is very romantic,
and light, like a feather.

It has to come from nowhere
and it has to touch people.

It can’t just be treated
as background music.

I’ve tried to play the piece
as the masterpiece that it is,

and I hope
that children who begin
learning 'Für Elise'
will treat it the same way.”
