Yuja Wang

An extraordinary piano recital.

Critical superlatives and audience ovations have continuously followed Yuja Wang’s dazzling career. The Beijing-born pianist, celebrated for her charismatic artistry and captivating stage presence, returns to Konserthuset Stockholm for another exciting piano recital. Programme to be announced later on.

Yuja Wang is widely recognized as one of the most important artists of her generation. Her prodigious virtuosity and technical control command critical acclaim. She believes, however, that technique should never be an end in itself, that it should always serve the cause of emotional expression and musical interpretation.

Her artistic credo is ultimately both simple and extraordinarily complex: ”I want to relate all life to music”, she recently told the Observer (London).
