- “The arrival of Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang on the musical scene is an exhilarating and unnerving development. To listen to her in action is to re-examine whatever assumptions you may have had about how well the piano can actually be played.” --<em>San Francisco Chronicle</em>
Praised for her “superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none” (San Francisco Chronicle), 23-year-old pianist Yuja Wang joins MTT and the San Francisco Symphony in Bartók’s Second Piano Concerto. The rhapsodic Romanian Folk Dances share the Concerto’s debt to Bartók’s legendary obsession with Eastern European folk music. The program concludes with the marvelous third act of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet Swan Lake.
