International sensation Yuja Wang plays a recital programme of works by late Romantic-era and 20th-century composers, recorded live in Berlin as part of a North American and European Recital tour that reached high critical acclaim.

Yuja always has been in love with Berlin as a centre for music and culture. Since 2013 she is a regular guest at the Berlin Philharmonie – performing concertos with the Berlin Philharmonic, the big solo pieces, but also chamber music. Yuja's stellar piano technique is matched by boundless imagination. This solo recital allows her to be her dazzling musical self!

Yuja Wang stirs memories of legendary artists with interpretations of boundless imagination, jaw-dropping technical command and transcendent power.

Yuja Wang’s philosophy of music is both simple and profoundly complex. “I want to relate all life to music,” she told veteran British critic Fiona Maddocks. The Beijing-born pianist’s album for Deutsche Grammophon captures the white heat of solo works by Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Scriabin and Ligeti, a trio of Russians together with one of the late 20th century’s greatest composers.

The Berlin Recital was recorded live in the summer of 2018 at the Berlin Philharmonie’s Kammermusiksaal during Yuja’s extensive solo tour of North America and Europe. The Yellow Label also recorded her sublime series of Berlin encore pieces, included on this LP, which span everything from the riffs and roulades of Nikolai Kapustin’s jazz-tinged Toccatina to Earl Wild’s sonorous transcription of the Pas de quatre from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
