Classical music
Chamber & Recital

Yuja Wang, piano

Part of International Organ Series

There is only one Yuja Wang. The young Chinese pianist rose to prominence while still in her teens, championed by such pre-eminent conductors as Claudio Abbado and Gustavo Dudamel.

Chopin's 24 Preludes have long been a classic of the keyboard, each one a vivid personality in its own right. When heard as a complete cycle, as here, they attain even greater cumulative impact.

Brahms loved variation form and the way he could take the simplest, shortest of ideas and grow from it a musical edifice is brilliantly demonstrated in his 'Handel' Variations, written as a birthday present for Clara Schumann.
