Why see Yuja Wang?

Piano Recital

A player of peerless speed and insight, Yuja Wang is one of the finest pianists alive today. Born in Beijing, she began piano lessons at the age of six and was instantly enthralled by the instrument. Completing her formal education at the Curtis Institute for Music in Philadelphia, it wasn't long before she was performing with likes of Gustavo Dudamel and et al. Of her performance of notoriously tricky Beethoven's Hammerklavier Sonata in 2016, the New York Times wrote: "Ms. Wang's virtuosity goes well beyond uncanny facility."

These select number of North American dates will see Ms. Wang playing works from all the great composers! Don't miss this stunning act of talent when it comes to a city near you.

Yuja unappreciated by OC crowd

Miss Wang’s performance Tuesday night at Disney was amazing. Last night at Segerstrom was less so I think because the orange county crowd went there to see her sexy outfits and pyrotechnic piano playing. They did not understand (accept) Yuja’s mellower program of lesser known pieces. Let’s allow some diversity and experimentation. I loved it! ... Read more

Most mixed recital I've ever heard..and why was she so upset??

Very strange recital. Yuja decided not to follow the written program, and seemed to be deciding in the moment what to play next, but this led to most of the audience not having a clue what they were listening to or when to applaud. The Scriabin (Sonatas #4 and 5) were spectacular, transcendental and technically phenomenal, as was Ravel Barque sur L'Ocean. But in my opinion Ms. Wang needs to rethink her Chopin and Brahms - wrong sound, wildly erratic rhythm - the mazurkas were bizarre. Berg Sonata was a big blur. And why was she so upset at the end of the concert? Audience clapped for almost 5 minutes before she came out, scowled and went backstage...no encore. ... Read more
