For the musician Lang Lang it seems to have become so routine: posing for photos as he flashes his piano-wide smile and attending seemingly endless red-carpet events and galas decked in the smartest suits with the swishest ties, all the while chatting away to all and sundry in effortless Chinese or English.
So when the 32-year-old appeared in the Theater of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on Nov 13, it all seemed terribly deja vu as he was awarded yet another prize, this time the Bambi award, making him the first Chinese to receive the German honor.
The Bambi is the country's most important media prize awarded by journalists and recognizes outstanding figures who inspire, touch and move German and global audiences. Lang received the award in recognition of his outstanding achievements in classical music.
At the ceremony he performed a piano solo and accompanied the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann, another Bambi award recipient this year.

"I'm very happy and honored to receive this award for the first time, very special," Lang says, adding that he wants to promote universal music education globally through the award.
Another Bambi recipient was Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, "honoring her engagement against domestic violence". The German singer Helene Fischer was also honored with the award, for the second time.
Previous recipients have included former US president Bill Clinton, the late former South African president Nelson Mandela and the Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
The award comes as Lang moves ahead with his work on music education projects and charitable activities.
