I'm a huge Mozart fan but I still thought I'd never want to hear (much less purchase!) another copy of Rondo Alla Turca. But when I heard Yuja Wang's unique performance of this often over-played piece, I just sat there with my jaw dropped! It was as if only the melody was familiar but the interpretation and execution of the music was completely fresh and exhilarating! Well done!
eh, not sure what to think
Yuja Wang's DG debut leaves me cold. She seems to come from the Lang Lang school of blah and the program seems tossed together in an attempt to impress the listener with her technique rather then her musical ability. It's a youthful careless program so I don't want to rush to judgement. She sounds as if she has some growing room left in her so we'll know for sure what to think a few recordings down the road.
What an exciting debut recital. A good mixture to keep you interested, and fingers that will blow you away. Listen to the bonus track (12) - unbelievable.
