Houston first met Chinese piano phenomenon Yuja Wang in March 2008 when she stepped in at the last minute as the soloist for the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. She was a favorite of conductor Sir Neville Marriner, and she immediately became one of Houston's, too!
Three years later, Ms. Wang is back as a recitalist. She has become widely recognized for piano playing that combines the spontaneity and fearless imagination of youth with the discipline and precision of a mature artist. Regularly lauded for her controlled, prodigious technique, Wang’s command of the piano has been described as “astounding” and “superhuman.” The Washington Post called Yuja’s Kennedy Center recital debut “jaw-dropping.”
