Not only does Joyce Yang hold the distinction of being the youngest ever silver medalist at the prestigious Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2005, this Juilliard graduate -- who started playing at the age of four -- has been praised by The Washington Post as a "poetic and sensitive pianist ... [yet] capable of hurling thunderbolts." She's become one of the most sought-after musicians of her generation, performing and recording with many of the world's top orchestras and chamber ensembles. Now this classical superstar comes to The Wallis in Beverly Hills for a solo recital reflecting her wide range of talents and interests, featuring works by classical favorites like Schumann and Debussy, contemporary artists like Carl Vine and Latin composers including Granados and Ginastera.
