Actually, I hadn't heard of him. Just checked the Wiki on spec, and then it was obvious.

As a matter of interest, relevant to people being well known, is Lang Lang well known there? I have a feeling he has more or less concentrated on Germany.

He is known here. But we have little fondness anymore for classical music or musicians and they don't get much press. Has been very well attended, however, when he performs here.

Ok, thanks for the info. I was curious. I've had him 4 or 5 times in concerts, and he is always great. 😊
