Pianist Lang Lang Ipad Video

Piano master Lang Lang performed a surprising, offbeat encore at a concert in San Francisco: the pianist played Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" on the iPad.

Lang Lang used the iPad app Magic Piano, from Smule, to "play" his tablet.

Ge Wang, the co-founder of Smule, told the Wall Street Journal, "I've never seen the freestyle Magic Piano played like he [Lang Lang] did." Wang added that he believes the Chinese pianist "totally digs Magic Piano and the iPad."

See Lang Lang's performance for yourself in the video below, then, for a different sort of sound, check out the world's first-ever iPad DJ.
