Notes & Reviews:

The young pianist Yuja Wang has already made quite a name for herself in a very limited period of time. Her debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon was a critical and popular success and even earned Yuja a Grammy nomination. On the heels of this impressive debut, Yuja returns with 'Transformation' which categorically demonstrates that she is a young master of the Steinway. This all-new recital highlights Yuja's penchant for piecing together high concept programs the public adores with no shortage of technical brilliance. This exciting program includes some of the most electrifying and demanding works in the solo piano repertoire. "She seems to have everything: speed, flexibility, pianistic thunder and interpretive nuance." -The New York Times
