In a world exclusive, we are pleased to present Lang Lang's brand new music video, 'Children's Dreams'

Lang Lang's new album Piano Book has been released by Deutsche Grammophon. It features pieces that were important to him as a child, works which inspired his love for the piano, including Beethoven's Bagatelle 'Für Elise', 'Nimrod' from Elgar's Enigma Variations and Debussy's Rêverie.

In this new music video, called 'Children's Dream', Lang Lang performs the Prelude in C major from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1, and the film touchingly portrays how music can transport us back to the limitless dreams and ambitions of our youth.

Piano Book is being released in conjunction with the sheet music (published by Faber Music) of the pieces included on the album so that young pianists can discover the piano repertoire that inspired Lang Lang.

Lang Lang says: 'I want to take every music lover on a journey through my favourite piano pieces. I hope to inspire as well as motivate every piano student to remain focused during daily practice, and to play and understand these essential pieces for what they really are: true masterpieces!'
