YUJA WANG

YUJA WANG
SPONTANEITY AND INTERPRETATIVE FREEDOM

The talented and charismatic pianist Yuja Wang enchants her audience in every one of her performances. Both extremely sweet and incredibly fierce, she is a dazzling, masterful interpreter, with a subtle and spirited talent that gives her the prodigious musical balance necessary for spinning classical music into a language as fresh and relevant as modern rock. Thought to be one of the best pianists of her generation, Wang is also known for her fearless theatrical style and her interpretations of 20th century piano works by artists such as Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Scriabin. She started playing when she was six years old and, at twenty-one, she was already a well-known concert piano player around the world. However, her road to fame began quite early when, at age eleven, she won the third prize in the Ettlingen International Music Competition in Germany for Young Pianists. In 2001, she participated in the first International Music Competition in Sendai (Japan), winning the third prize in the piano section and also obtaining the special prize of the jury, given to the most distinguished finalist under twenty years old. Since then, she has performed all over the world and recorded a number of best-selling albums. She is now highly sought after by all the greatest classical concert halls. With her debut, the Peralada Festival also made its wish come true.
