Notes & Reviews:

For pianist Yuja Wang's newest album on DG, she wows with two perennial hits: Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major and The Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in D major. Ravel composed both concertos between 1929 and 1930 and the latter was commissioned by the Austrian pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right arm during World War I. The young, stellar conductor Lionel Bringuier and Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich are the perfect partners.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
The outer movements are so deliciously light, like the most perfect soufflT, executed with disarming insouciance by pianist and orchestra alike...You could not wish for a more atmospheric account of this concerto - nor a more thrilling one...The same applies to the Left Hand Concerto with an opening that is truly sinister.
