Wang

Piano

Yuja Wang was born into a musical family in Beijing. After childhood piano studies in China, she received advanced training in Canada and at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman. Her international breakthrough came in 2007 when she replaced Martha Argerich as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Miss Wang has since established her place among the world’s leading artists, with a succession of critically acclaimed performances and recordings. She was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year in 2017.

Recent highlights include a tour to China with the Vienna Philharmonic and Andrés Orozco-Estrada (performing Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto), and a recital tour with cellist Gautier Capuçon (with works by Chopin and Franck) featuring eleven dates presented in Europe’s premiere venues, including the Philharmonie de Paris and the Vienna Konzerthaus. Yuja Wang also reprised John Adams’ newest piano concerto Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? (premiered by her in Spring 2019) with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel.

Yuja Wang made her debut with the Concertgebouworkest in 2010, and returned in 2014. She joined the orchestra and Gustavo Gimeno in October/November 2015 for performances of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2, which they also took on tour to Japan and Taiwan.
