Disney has announced a brand-new musical special called “Lang Lang Plays Disney”, which will be coming to Disney+ on September 15th 2023.
In this exclusive one-night-only concert at Royal Albert Hall, “Lang Lang Plays Disney” is an unrivalled musical and visual treat that showcases unique arrangements of Disney’s most popular songs and gives insight into the life of world-renowned pianist Lang Lang. Through performance and documentary segments, the film opens an intimate window into his extraordinary musical journey as he speaks to his love for Disney dating back to his childhood in China. Joined by London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Lang Lang invites audiences to savor Disney classics such as “Let It Go”, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”, “You’ll Be in My Heart” feat. English recording artist Alfie Boe, “When You Wish Upon a Star” feat. performer Gina Alice Redlinger and more.
Lang Lang is a leading figure in classical music today – as a pianist, educator and philanthropist, he has become one of the world’s most influential and committed ambassadors for the arts in the 21st century. Equally happy playing for billions of viewers at the 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony in Beijing or just for a few hundred children in the public schools, he is a master of communicating through music.
Lang Lang has previously worked with Disney on an album called “The Disney Book”, which saw him performing hits from Snow White, Encanto, Beauty and the Beast, Pinocchio and many more. And performed a cover of “Mulan’s” “Reflection” with Nicole Scherzinger duringKing Charles III’s coronation concert.
