YUJA WANG

Critical superlatives and audience ovations have continuously followed Yuja Wang’s dazzling career.

The Beijing-born pianist is set to achieve new heights during the 2018/19 season, which features recitals, concert series, season residencies and extensive tours with some of the world’s most venerated ensembles and conductors.

In autumn 2018, Yuja toured with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Kirill Petrenko, before undertaking a recital tour to South America, as well as concerts with the Munich Philharmonic and Valery Gergiev throughout Asia.

Autumn also marked the release of her solo recital album The Berlin Recital by Deutsche Grammophon, featuring works by Rachmaninov, Scriabin and Prokofiev, recorded live at the Philharmonie Berlin.

This season, Yuja is Artist-in Residence at three of the world's premier venues: New York's Carnegie Hall, Wiener Konzerthaus and Luxembourg Philharmonie.

Spring 2019 sees her embark on a tour with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra to give the first ever performances of John Adams’ newest piano concerto, as well as reuniting with cellist Gautier Capuçon for a vast US chamber tour.

Yuja Wang is an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist and has established her place among the world’s leading recording artists, with a succession of critically acclaimed discs.

She is a Steinway Artist and Rolex ambassador.
