Publisher's Summary

Lang Lang started learning to play the piano when he was three years old in Shenyang, China. Today he is one of the world's most outstanding pianists. In this engrossing life story, adapted by Michael French, Lang Lang not only recounts the difficult, often thrilling, events of his early days, but also shares his perspective on his rapidly changing homeland. He thoughtfully explores the differences between East and West, especially in the realm of classical music and cultural life.

Shining through his rags-to-riches story of a child prodigy who came of age as a renowned musician, Lang Lang's positive spirit, his dynamic personality, and his enduring passion for music will inspire listeners of all ages.

Inspiring and fascinating

Really enjoyed listening to this audible book, an amazing life story! Vividly written and well narrated, it was a wonderful and very moving insight into the world of Classical musicianship, of China and of human resilience; a tale of phenomenal hard work, sacrifice and awesome talent, combined with an open and likeable personality, and resulting in Lang Lang's fantastic achievements. It inspired me on many levels and I recommend the book to everyone, young people and adults.
