Klavier-Zyklus V: YUJA WANG (30.04.2012, Schiller Theater)


LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Sonate Es-Dur op. 27/1

SERGEJ PROKOFJEW
Sonate Nr. 6 A-Dur op. 82

FRANZ LISZT
Sonate h-Moll

Yuja Wang is one of the world's renowned youngest pianist. Comes from the 'school of China' (Lang Lang, everyone?), Yuja has reached so much with her 4 albums under Deutsche Grammophon. Beside an Echo Award and a Grammy Nomination, her latest effort, FANTASIA, sells like hot cakes in Dussmann. Nuff said...

That night Ms. Wang played a repertoire that is quite far from her latest album, even though her play of these pieces is quite familiar already. They are nice, but somehow doesn't really suit her. Each piece is great, but somehow they're just good stuffs thrown into the same basket case - they don't connect. I somehow prefer her doing the encores from Fantasia, pieces that she loves. 

Showing off for the encore, Wang picked my personal favorite of Fantasia: Variations on a Theme From Bizet's "Carmen". The whole audience are hypnotized and got very excited!

Rating: 7.5/10


Fantasia is in stores now...

+ Here comes the bonus:
