YUJA WANG piano
Yuja Wang is widely recognized for her way of playing that combines the spontaneity and fearless imagination of the youth with the discipline and precision of a mature artist. Regularly lauded for her controlled, prodigious technique, Yuja has been praised for her authority over the most complex technical demands of the repertoire, the depth of her musical insight, as well as her fresh interpretations and graceful, charismatic stage presence.
In the few short years since her 2005 debut with the National Arts Center Orchestra led by Pinchas Zukerman (when Canadian press announced, "a star is born"), Yuja has already performed with many of the world’s prestigious orchestras.
Yuja is an exclusive recording artist for Deutsche Grammophon.
«Because she is terrific. And mainly because live she is magnetic. She is a musician, she is contagious and still embodies the fundamental aspect of the artist, which wants the body with its individuality to became one with music..»
