Brilliant pianist Yuja Wang made a triumphant return to the Classical Action house concert stage on April 25. An artist widely recognized as one of the most important of her generation, Wang presented a recital program she was preparing for her North American tour, which included a performance at Carnegie Hall a few weeks later.
Wang performed a full range of works by composers Johannes Brahms and Ludwig van Beethoven, bringing her signature sense of style and sass to the classical compositions. After an extended standing ovation from the ecstatic audience after the final chord was struck, Wang delighted audiences with a jazzy rendition of Nikolai Kapustin’s “Toccatina” and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Turkish Rondo.”
