Shows - Commissariato Italiano Esposizione Universale di Shanghai 2010

Philharmonic Orchestra of La Scala and Wang Yujia

September 17 7.30 PM - Auditorium Expo (Expo Park)

The Philharmonic Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala conducted by Semyon Bychov and with the special participation of the young musician Yuja Wang of Chinese origin that has been collecting successes all over the world.

Twenty-three year old Chinese pianist Yuja Wang is widely recognized for playing that combines the spontaneity and fearless imagination of youth with the discipline and precision of a mature artist. Regularly lauded for her controlled, prodigious technique, Yuja’s command of the piano has been described as “astounding” and “superhuman,” and she has been praised for her authority over the most complex technical demands of the repertoire, the depth of her musical insight, as well as her fresh interpretations and graceful, charismatic stage presence. Following her San Francisco recital debut The San Francisco Chronicle wrote “The arrival of Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang on the musical scene is an exhilarating and unnerving development. To listen to her in action is to re-examine whatever assumptions you may have had about how well the piano can actually be played,” and The Washington Post called Yuja’s Kennedy Center recital debut “jaw-dropping.”
