Overview

The young pianist Yuja Wang has already made quite a name for herself in a very limited period of time. Her debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon was a critical and popular success and even earned Yuja a Grammy® nomination. On the heels of this impressive debut, Yuja returns with Transformation, which categorically demonstrates that she is a young master of the Steinway.

This all-new recital highlights Yuja’s penchant for piecing together high concept programs the public adores with no shortage of technical brilliance. This exciting program includes some of the most electrifying and demanding works in the solo piano repertoire. From the Label

Editorial Reviews

The Independent
Wang's command and artistry is never in doubt right from the opening Allegro Giusto section, described in delicate little left-hand runs against a pointilliste upper-register, the combination lifting [Stravinsky's Petrushka] in a weightless, dizzying dance.
The Times (U.K.) - Geoff Brown
The brilliant Chinese pianist dazzles with more than technical panache. She understands what she plays; she’s sensitive and has poise. She’s also a clever programme builder.
