Musical selfie

The concert was dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the Cuban capital. Lang and Valdes played pieces by Cuban master Ernesto Lecuona (1895-1963) and other composers from Russia, the UK and the US. The US company Steinway & Sons donated a grand piano valued at over $148,000, which was given to the Cuban Institute of Music after the concert. “It will be a historic concert as two piano greats performing on the same stage is not an everyday event,” said Enrique Perez Mesathe, director of Cuba’s National Symphony Orchestra, before the concert.
