Yuja Wang, a firebrand whose “artistic eloquence,” says the Chronicle, “is second to none,” applies her “superhuman” hands to Beethoven’s poetic Piano Concerto. “You can’t have any idea what it’s like always to hear such a giant marching behind you,” said Brahms about writing a symphony after Beethoven had revolutionized the form. He took 20 years to complete his First, the dramatic opening of which boldly announces the torrent of emotions—and melodies—finally released.
“[Wang has] practically superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none.” —SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
