UW World Series - Yuja Wang

“By the end of the final movement, the audience stood and roared.” The Philadelphia Inquirer

Barely in her twenties, this Bejing-born pianist has already made a series of important debuts in Europe, and has played under the baton of Pinchas Zukerman with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. Her recent engagements have included performances with the New York Philharmonic and the Houston, San Francisco, and Chicago symphonies, to name just a few. Several notable substitutions—stepping in for Radu Lupu, Jon Kimura Parker and Murray Perahia—have added to her international acclaim.
