The latest young pianist from China to excite classical music audiences and earn raves from critics is 25-year-old Yuja Wang, a distinctive artist with a comprehensive technique.
That Wang is already a musician of consequence was made clear when Deutsche Grammophon released her first recording with an orchestra: performances of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Second Piano Concerto with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. The conductor is Claudio Abbado, a towering maestro who is extremely discriminating in his choice of collaborators.
For the Rome audience she plays Fauré, Brahms and Rachmaninov.
