Louisville Orchestra 2017-18 Season
Yuja Wang has secured a place of distinction among the world’s finest performers due to her rare blend of technical refinement, musical insight, and emotional sensitivity. The intense power of her interpretations comes from a combination of exceptional presence on stage and a natural affinity for repertoire ranging from Mozart to Gershwin. ‘Charismatic’, ‘breathtaking’, ‘flawless’ and ‘heartfelt’ are just some of the superlatives used frequently by critics worldwide.
A towering work requiring gigantic mastery of the piano, Rachmaninoff’s 4th Piano Concerto is an outpouring of emotions from intimate to epic. Be careful, it may become your favorite piece of all time!
