Exhibition Playlist

Yuja Wang Plays Gluck, Liszt & Scriabin

Exhibition playlist 16 of 17 ‹ previous | next ›

We knew she was an incredible talent, but watching up close as Yuja Wang performs is another matter. She plays so lightning fast it seems as if we’ve speeded up the video. Her technique is dazzling and precise, but it’s equaled by her passion and sensitivity.

In this video, recorded at the Steinway showroom in West Hollywood,

Yuja is playing bits of three different pieces by Gluck, Liszt and Scriabin. It's wonderful to watch her change pace and mood and see the concentration and deep feeling in her expression. At the end, it' almost as if she emerges from an intense dream, smiling, and telling us, "This piano's nice."
