The New Year Concert concluded with Radetzky March, played by Lang Lang together with 72 children from Inner Mongolia's eight cities.

"Lang Lang's piano playing is so fantastic. In one moment I felt like I was walking on a country road in North Europe, in another I was in front of the magnificent mountains and rivers of China," an audience nicknamed Li said while describing his feelings.

Lang Lang was the first Chinese pianist to be engaged by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic and some top American orchestras. He has won many authoritative awards in classical music.
