Description
Slight of frame but très très formidable of execution, Yuja Wang brings fresh musical insights and interpretations to these live recordings of Prokofiev's challenging Concerto No. 2 in G Minor and Rachmaninov's even more daunting Concerto No. 3 in D Minor ("Rach 3"). For her debut and sophomore recordings, Wang received the Gramophone and Echo Klassik awards as "Young Artist of the Year."

"The 26-year-old, Chinese-born pianist says there's something about the Rach 3 that reminds her of legendary improvisational jazz pianist Art Tatum. Wang says she's positive that Rachmaninov, a turn-of-the-last-century Russian composer, must have started out improvising alone at the keyboard the way a jazz musician might."—NPR

"The incandescent young Chinese pianist Yuja Wang teams up with the equally explosive Gustavo Dudamel (of the LA Philharmonic) in this album featuring two warhorses of the piano concerto repertoire…. A superb debut collaboration."—Christian Science Monitor
