What I don't understand is why people all admire and admire Horowitz, while they say Lang Lang is just crap.

Their playing definately have something in common. A Dutch newspaper said that Lang Lang's performance in the Concertgebouw let him think of the young Horowitz. Both are virtuoso's, with extreme technique and not afraid to show them. Both are wonderful showmen.

The difference lies in the age I think. If Lang Lang ever chooses to play in a more mature way, he will play in a style somewhat similar to Horowitz I think.

I won't go into further details, because probably many people won't agree with me :P.



Lang Lang acknowledges the Horowitz influence in his playing, and it's easy to hear the "Horowitzisms" in his playing, particularly his Scriabin Etudes recordings. In fact he now owns (don't know if he performs on it) one of Horowitz' pianos. Seems to me he is determined to be the next Horowitz. However if you compare Lang Lang to Horowitz' early recordings, I think you'll find that Horowitz is by far the more finished artist, with more subtelty in his playing, and a ppp dynamic ability that I've never heard from Lang Lang. The young Horowitz is far superior is this respect to Lang Landg. Interesting, I think you've put your finger on the heart of the matter; "when Lang Lang CHOOSES to play in a more mature way". Who knows what he will do, but I'm sure he will continue to play no matter what. Having taken Horowitz as a departure point he's making his own style and has already carved a niche for himself in music history. Good for him! 8)
