Carnegie Hall Live

Yuja Wang solo recital

BRAHMS: Ballades Op 10, No 1 in D minor, No 2 in D;

SCHUMANN: Kreisleriana Op 16;

BEETHOVEN: Piano Sonata No 29 in Bb Op 106, Hammerklavier - Yuja Wang (piano)

(recorded in Carnegie Hall, New York by WQXR)

“Her combination of technical ease, colouristic range and sheer power has always been remarkable, as has the sense that she is entirely at one with the instrument, but these days there is an ever-greater depth to her musicianship, drawing you into the world of each composer with compelling immediacy.” Financial Times.

"Yuja’s way of making music connects with a strikingly broad demographic. It appeals to everyone, from classical music newcomers to devoted pianophiles, and has attracted an exceptionally youthful following. Her love for fashion, recognised by her induction into Giorgio Armani’s Sì Women’s Circle, has also contributed to the popular appeal of an artist who is armed with the ability to challenge the status quo and to welcome fresh converts to the concert hall."
