With this album, Lang Lang presents a treasure trove of musical discoveries.

Saint-Saëns's Piano Concerto No. 2, recorded with a stellar cast, the Gewandhausorchester and Andris Nelsons, is for Lang Lang a true romantic masterpiece that rivals the greats like Rachmaninoff or Tchaikovsky. By pairing it with Carnival of the Animals, a whimsical menagerie that has captivated young hearts for generations, Lang Lang continues his heartfelt wish to promote the love of classical music to kids and it also gives him a chance to collaborate with his wife, pianist Gina Alice.

Complementing these works with hidden gems — unearthed solo compositions by five female French composers as well as beloved French classics — has created a feast for the ears, promising a captivating experience.
