Biography
Yuja Wang

Pianist Yuja Wang is celebrated for her charismatic artistry, emotional honesty, and captivating stage presence. She has performed with the world’s most venerated conductors, musicians, and ensembles and is renowned not only for her virtuosity, but also her spontaneous and lively performances. Her skill and charisma were recently demonstrated in her performance of Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala in October 2021, following its historic 572-day closure.

Wang was born into a musical family in Beijing. After childhood piano studies in China, she received advanced training in Canada and at the 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. Two years later, she signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and has since established a place among the world’s leading artists, with a succession of critically acclaimed performances and recordings. She was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year in 2017, and in 2021 received an Opus Klassik Award for her world-premiere recording of John Adams’s Must the Devil Have all the Good Tunes? with the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

As a chamber musician, Yuja Wang has developed long-lasting partnerships with leading artists, notably violinist Leonidas Kavakos, with whom she recorded Brahms’s complete violin sonatas and performed duo recitals in America in autumn 2021. In 2022 she embarks on a highly anticipated international recital tour, with appearances in world-class venues across North America, Europe, and Asia, bringing to audiences her flair, technical ability, and artistry in a wide-ranging program that includes works by Ligeti, Beethoven, and Kapustin.
