The House Pianist

by Jay Nordlinger

Lang Lang will play for Obama and Hu. He tends to do that. He played at the Beijing Olympics. He played at Obama’s Nobel ceremony. He played at the White House event for Paul McCartney, in which McCartney made those asinine anti-Bush remarks, and Lang Lang and everybody else laughed like hyenas.

If Lang Lang wants to be a court pianist, he could find much better courts. If he said a single word against the CCP, he would do a world of good. Don’t hold your breath. He’d rather entertain for the gulag-masters than criticize them.
