Lang Lang's new album Lang Lang: Saint-Saens sees the celebrated pianist explore the sometimes whimsical, and often romantic, world of Camille Saint-Saens.

By joining forces with his wife, pianist Gina Alice Redlinger, the Gewandhausorchester — a symphony orchestra founded in 1743 and based in Leipzig, Germany, and Grammy Award-winning conductor Andris Nelsons, Lang recorded The Carnival of the Animals.

For the new album, Lang also recorded Saint-Saens' virtuosic Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 2 in G Minor Op 22, as well as a dozen works for solo or four hands piano — a blend of pieces which, as Lang describes, are "neglected gems by five female French composers".
