Grammy-nominated pianist Yuja Wang has played with some of the most celebrated orchestras in the world, from the New York Philharmonic to the Berlin Staatskapelle and the Orchestre de Paris. Such company would be impressive for an artist of any age, but Wang has yet to break 30. As the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “She is, quite simply, the most dazzlingly, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today, and there’s nothing left to do but sit back, listen and marvel at her artistry.” Lucky for audiences, they get to do just that at her upcoming solo performance.
- Schubert—Piano Sonata in A: Schubert’s shortest and arguably most playful sonata consists of three movements, with the first paying tribute to Beethoven’s seventh symphony
- Schubert/Liszt—Selections from Schwanengesang: German for “swan song,” Schubert’s final collection of music—released posthumously—took inspiration from three different poets, and was transcribed for solo piano by Franz Liszt in the 19th century
- Scriabin—Various: Scriabin’s music was highly influenced by his interest in theology and philosophy, as exhibited by the contemplative strains in Piano Sonata No. 9 (“Black Mass). The piano starts out slow and contemplative, but becomes nervous—almost ominous—as the work progresses, perhaps fretting over the fate of humankind.
- Balakirev—Islamey: After Russia conquered the Turkic Kingdoms in the 19th century, they became fascinated by the region’s culture. This influence is especially apparent in Islamey, which uses lush harmonies to recall several Islamic fantasy tales.
