Biografie

Hailed by the 'San Francisco Chronicle' in 2012 as "quite simply the most dazzlingly, uncannily gifted pianist in the concert world today", Yuja Wang has captivated critics and audiences around the world since she was named Gilmore Young Artist Award winner at the age of 22 in 2005. Born into a musical family in Beijing, she started to play the piano as a child and studied at the Chinese capital's Central Conservatory of Music and the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Following success in competitions, she debuted in Europe playing Beethoven's 'Piano Concerto No. 4' with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and in North America with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada. She toured America with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields conducted by Neville Marriner and also toured with the Royal Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic. She made her recording debut with 'Sonatas & Etudes By Chopin, Scriabin, Liszt & Ligeti' in 2009 followed in 2010 by 'Transformation: Stravinksy, Scarlatti, Brahms, Ravel' which went to number 17 on Billboard's Classical Albums Chart. 'Sonatas & Etudes: Chopin, Scriabin, Liszt, Ligeti' (2010) reached number 21 and 'Rachmaninov' (2011) peaked at number 21. Her 2012 recording 'Fantasia' went to number nine on the chart as did 'Rachmaninov #3/Prokofiev #2' (2013) and 'Ravel' (2015). Her latest album 'Ravel: Complete Orchestral Works' was released in 2016.
