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. This season includes performances of Turangalila as well as a debut with the Vienna Philharmonic. The 16/17 season sees Yuja named as Artist-in-Residence at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
