Yuja Wang

The Chinese pianist Yuja Wang is praised for her electrifying, spontaneous playing, brilliance and glamour. Born in Beijing, she has been playing on the major world stages since she was a teenager. She often perfroms intensely virtuoso pieces with a lot of orchestral spectacle. But she also has another side, which was featured on the Grammy award-winning album The Berlin Recital. 'In my recitals, I often do something different than people expect of me,' she said in preparation for a new solo concert. 'I then make more of an inner journey, with intimate works.' Tonight, this journey leads audiences through works by Beethoven, Schönberg, Ligeti, Scriabin, Albéniz and Kapustin.
