In a relatively brief time, the career of 25-year-old Chinese pianist Yuja Wang has taken off like a meteor. A technically phenomenal performer, with a flair for fashion, she has become a YouTube sensation. But she is also a thoughtful musician with an ear for color, texture, and harmony. In the words of the San Francisco Chronicle, “She is, quite simply the most dazzlingly uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today, and there’s nothing left to do but to sit back, listen and marvel at her artistry.”
Yuja’s McCarter recital debut program will include Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 3 in a, Op.28; Three Movements from Stravinsky's Petrushka; and music of Chopin, including the Ballade No. 3 and the great Sonata No. 3 in b, Op.58.
