Go­ing Solo

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

Chi­nese con­cert pi­anist Lang Lang is sure to de­liver some of his trade­mark on-stage the­atrics, such as tai chi move­ments and in­tense gazes into the front row, when he per­forms a solo recital this month. His for­mi­da­ble dex­ter­ity, charis­matic per­son­al­ity and ex­per­i­men­tal ap­proach to his in­stru­ment have ce­mented Lang Lang’s place on the world stage as the poster boy for China’s cul­tural soft power. In the past, he has worked with Her­bie Han­cock and heavy metal band Me­tal­lica, and he has re­cently col­lab­o­rated with lux­ury watchmaker Hublot in de­sign­ing a time­piece due for release in March. Jan­uary 22; 8.15pm; $280–880; Hong Kong Coli­seum; urbtix.hk
