I was there last night, incredible show. She didn't follow the program directly. She made an announcement prior to the show that should would mix it up and let the music guide her, something like that. She dressed beautifully, but I much preferred the first dress. Long, elegant, beautiful. The performance was wonderful.

She came back out 4 times at the end for encore performances, and these were the best, very virtuosic. I don't understand why people kept leaving, they thought she was done! Nothing is done until they turn up the lights.

It must be wonderful for Ms. Wang having so much music concert ready that she can let the music guide her. She's great. I've seen her in concert, but not a recital. I'd love that.

Wonderful Yuja Wang!
Went to the Orange County recital last night at Segerstrom. An exhilarating experience! As noted, Wang did not follow the printed program, but let her feelings dictate what she should play at the moment.
Yuja entered the stage in her usual fashionista style, rocking a tight sequined white cocktail dress and high heels.
She began with the Galuppi, a nice warm up, then launched into "Une Barque". Her pianism and total control of the keyboard are never in doubt. The tonal colors and aural sounds she generated were wonderful, probably the highlight of the program for me. That was followed by the Mompou, also from the Impressionist school, then the Berg. She then jumped centuries and finished the 1st half of the program with the Bach Toccata.
The audience ate it all up, giving ovations after each piece. That proved to be a detriment in the 2nd half, in my opinion.
After changing into a lemon citrine colored gown, she began with a thunderous splashy Scriabin (Sonata #5). After which she spent time at the keyboard in thought, deciding which piece she felt like playing, then intermixing the Chopin Mazurkas and Brahms Intermezzi. She was trying to set a mood, but the audience would clap after each short piece, not wanting to withhold their appreciation. I felt that was getting on her nerves. She finished with the dramatic Scriabin No. 4, a piece described as one long climax.
After repeated bows, no encores.
My first time hearing Yuja live in solo recital, well worth attending. Afterwards, no autographs. Some piano students were waiting outside the artists entrance, hoping for a meet, but she had quickly left the premises. Her rock star status is cemented among these young musicians. Some waited over 2 hours at Disney the night before, hoping for a meet and greet, but again, no dice. eek

Perhaps she runs straight off stage into a taxi.

Thanks for posting it.
It's a superbly done review -- really lets us know how it was -- and it was pretty unusual.

The comments on coughing made me laugh. I thought there was a lot of coughing at the LA concert.

I am not sure how one confused a mazurka with Bach 😁

Perhaps Yuja is just channeling András Schiff in the narcissism department?

It seems there is more to it: Fury as Yuja, In Dark Glasses, Blanks Her Audience.

Angela Hewitt is performing the last two concerts of her Bach Series at the 92nd St Y in New York are coming up on March 30th and April 2nd. I will be there.

I have been privileged to have seen most of the concerts in her Bach series. Her performance of the Goldberg Variations was a transcendent moment for me. The whole audience was stunned into silence at the end of the piece.

Yuja already has rebutted some of the claims in the last article.

Whatever happened in Vancouver Airport, it must have been dreadful.

She wore sunglasses because she had been crying all day, so she must have been badly shaken up. I'm so sorry she had such a horrible experience.
