Event details

Yannick Nézet-Séguin, direction
Yuja Wang, piano


Do not be deceived by Yuja Wang’s china doll physique and taste for sheath dresses and heels, as she is an exceptionally gifted performer with excellent technical skills who exudes energy. As well as having a common homeland and teacher (US pianist Gary Graffman) Yuja Wang and Lang Lang are cast in the same mould, demonstrating staggering technical ability and an uninhibited approach to performance. She can turn her hand to anything: concerts, recitals, chamber music (with several performances in Paris in recent seasons) and approaches each appearance at the keyboard with the same gusto. This evening, she has chosen Rachmaninov’s last concerto, which is less popular than the previous two, but of great interest nevertheless, as it demonstrates the effects of the composer’s exposure to twentieth century western music and jazz in particular.
