Overview

Yuja Wang joins legendary maestro Claudio Abbado on her first orchestral album. To the challenging Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no. 2, she adds the daunting Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. This, the composer's last composition for piano and orchestra, is the keystone of his symphonic oeuvre.

Yuja Wang, Gramophone's “Young Artist of the Year” 2009, hearkens to the no-holds-barred pianistic sensations of the 19th century. “Whereas many pianists try to dominate this set of variations, she worked with it.
