Biography
Yuja Wang

Beijing-born pianist Yuja Wang is set to achieve new heights in critical superlatives and audience ovations during the 2018–19 season, through recitals, concert series, season residencies, and extensive tours with some of the world’s most venerated ensembles and conductors. In the autumn of 2018 she toured with the Berlin Philharmonic and Kirill Petrenko, then undertook a recital tour to South America and performed several concerts with the Munich Philharmonic, conducted by Valery Gergiev, throughout Asia. It also marked the release of her solo recital album, The Berlin Recital, by Deutsche Grammophon, featuring works by Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, and Prokofiev, recorded live at the Berlin Philharmonie.

This season Ms. Wang is featured as an artist-in-residence at three of the world's premier venues: Carnegie Hall, with a season-long Perspectives series; the Wiener Konzerthaus, with a Portrait series; and the Luxembourg Philharmonie. In the spring 2019 she embarks on a tour with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to give the first-ever performances of John Adams’s newest piano concerto, and she reunites with cellist Gautier Capuçon for a vast US chamber tour.

Yuja Wang received advanced training in Canada and at Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with 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.
