Biography
Yuja Wang

Critical superlatives and audience ovations have continuously followed Beijing-born pianist Yuja Wang’s career. Celebrated for her charismatic artistry and captivating stage presence, she is set to achieve new heights during the 2019–20 season, which features recitals, concert series, season residencies, and extensive tours with some of the world’s most venerated ensembles and conductors.

Highlights include her year-long “Artist Spotlight” at London’s Barbican Centre, where she curates and performs in four events: the first London performance of John Adams’s newest piano concerto (which she premiered in the spring of 2019), Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, which they take to Boston and New York City; recitals featuring cellist Gautier Capuçon and clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer; and a solo recital.

Her 2019–20 season touring highlights include traveling to China with the Vienna Philharmonic, European recitals with Gautier Capucon, and a solo recital tour with stops at New York’s Carnegie Hall, San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw.

Additionally, she is the featured soloist with some of North America’s leading orchestras, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Andris Nelsons, Toronto Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Gimeno, San Francisco Symphony led by Michael Tilson Thomas, and The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Yuja Wang received advanced training in Canada and at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman. Her international breakthrough came in 2007 when she replaced Martha Argerich as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She later signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon and has since established her place among the world’s leading artists, with a succession of critically acclaimed performances and recordings. She was named Musical America’s 2017 Artist of the Year.
