Yuja Wang, piano (2011 Season)

Fri, Jan 14, 2011 @ 8:00 PM, Hahn Hall

“The arrival of Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang on the musical scene is an exhilarating and unnerving development. To listen to her in action is to re-examine whatever assumptions you may have had about how well the piano can actually be played.” San Francisco Chronicle Winner of the 2010 Avery Fisher career grant, 23-year-old Yuja Wang is already one of the world’s most celebrated pianists, regularly lauded for her controlled, flawless technique and a command of the piano that has been hailed as “astounding,” “superhuman,” and “jaw-dropping.” She is distinguished by her authority over the most complex technical demands and the depth of her musical insight, as well as her fresh interpretations and graceful, charismatic stage presence.
