A pianist that radiates palpable magnetism and a distinctly contemporary sensibility, Yuja Wang is an astounding artist whose awe-inspiring technique is matched only by her eloquence as a musician. She has established herself as an international sensation and a fixture among the world’s leading orchestras, including Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington; the London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berlin and Munich Philharmonics, Orquesta Nacional de España, Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Mariinsky Orchestra, the Israel and China Philharmonics, NHK Symphony, Melbourne and Sydney Symphonies and Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar. Championed early on by preeminent Maestros including Gustavo Dudamel, Michael Tilson Thomas and the late Claudia Abbado, she is one of today’s most sought after soloists.
Her 17/18 season includes play-conduct tours with Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Europe, as well as joining the inaugural tour of Jaap van Zweden with the New York Philharmonic, and the final tour of Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s directorship with Rotterdam Philharmonic.
Yuja has been named as Musical America’s Artist of the Year 2017.
