Filming with pianist LANG LANG completed

The Chinese pianist LANG LANG is considered one of the world’s number one classical music stars. BOOMTOWN MEDIA finished the shooting of a revealing film, which offers an unique inside view into the life and mind of the modern virtuoso. Director Thomas Grube and cinematographer Nicolas Hudak accompanied LANG LANG through China, the US and Europe this summer.

The documentary (HD, 52/58 min. versions) is produced  in collaboration with ZDF. It was filmed over five month in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chicago, Milan, London and Berlin and will also be part of LANG LANG’S upcoming LISZT NOW! DVD, released worldwide by SONY CLASSICAL this autumn.

The production wrapped last week at this year’s iTunes Festival at the ROUNDHOUSE in London, where LANG LANG performed a remarkable LISZT recital as the only classical music artist next to international pop stars like COLDPLAY, ADELE or LINKIN PARK. A classical concert in a truly rock-star-like surrounding. The standing and cheering audience and the ultimately passionate virtuoso were accompanied by outstanding projections on five large LED screens on stage and dozens all over the room.

Next to the documentary a LIVE IN CONCERT version of Lang Lang’s performance at the ROUNDHOUSE is produced by BOOMTOWN MEDIA in cooperation with iTunes, Sony Classical and arte. This exceptional 52 min. music program, shot with 12 HD-cameras (including dolly/jib/crane) during the performance, will be presented on DVD and also be available as separate TV program, next to the documentary.

The US distributor Fathom will present the concert version "LANG LANG | LIVE AT THE ROUNDHOUSE" in US cinemas this autumn.
