About This Performance
Yuja Wang's performances are spontaneous and fearless, with technique described as "astounding" and "superhuman." She'll need it for this intriguing recital of French and Russian music from the first decades of the 20th century, a turbulent era in the piano’s history, as composer virtuosos such as Debussy, Scriabin, Ravel, and Rachmaninoff radicalized keyboard techniques and repertory.
After several exhilarating concerto performances with the LA Phil, here and at the Hollywood Bowl, Yuja Wang makes her recital debut at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Rachmaninoff’s turbulent Sonata No. 2 and Ravel’s swirling, hyperactively expanding tribute to the Viennese waltz.
