This Thanksgiving, "Live from Lincoln Center" presents the internationally acclaimed pianist Lang Lang and his love letter to New York, the city he considers his adoptive home, set to the music that helped make the city so famous.
“Lang Lang’s New York Rhapsody” will air as part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival. The special concert features celebrated artists, including Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Suzanne Vega, Jerry Douglas, Andra Day, Lindsey Stirling, and Sean Jones. The 30-piece orchestra will be conducted by Jason Michael Webb, with musical direction by David Lai.
Together, these artists perform works from Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, and Danny Elfman to Lou Reed, Alicia Keys, and Don Henley, including a rare performance of the original 1924 jazz band arrangement of George Gershwin’s "Rhapsody in Blue."
“Lang Lang’s New York Rhapsody” will air on PBS affiliates nationwide Friday, November 25, at 9:00 p.m.
