Fan favorite and former Houston Symphony Music Director Christoph Eschenbach returns to the podium at Jones Hall to conduct pianist and Deutsche Grammophon recording artist Lang Lang in a program called, unsurprisingly, Eschenbach and Lang Lang. Recently, Lang's performance at the XXIX Olympics was seen by more than 5 billion people and propelled him even further into the superstar stratosphere. The impressive Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra - each of the orchestra's talented members is younger than 27 years old - is also on the bill. 8 p.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $40 to $150.
