Scarlatti's Sonatas in E and B minor, and Ravel's La Valse. Yuja Wang's ability to take her music by storm is tempered by a sophisticated musicality that never distorts the line. Transformation highlights Yuja Wang's penchant for piecing together high concept programs the public adores. She seems to have everything: speed, flexibility, pianistic thunder and interpretive nuance.

For her sophomore release, Wang carefully selected and constructed the solo programme featuring Brahms, Ravel, Scarlatti and Stravinsky. 96 kHz, 24-bit PCM – Deutsche Grammophon GmbH, Berlin Studio Masters

Transformation: Stravinsky, Scarlatti, Brahms. Composer, Transcription.

For instance, Stravinsky’s Three Movements from Petrouchka traces the transformation of puppet to human and back. The Brahms piece, Variations on a Theme by Paganini is bound up in thematic transformations of one of music’s most famous themes. The Scarlatti sonatas (K 380 and K 466) are oases of quiet in an often tempestuous program. A mighty tempest closes this recital – Ravel’s La Valse, which can be viewed as a transformation of this dance-form. This 1920s piece was written for the Ballets Russes but was rejected

Yuja Wang's ability to take her music by storm is tempered by a sophisticated musicality that never distorts the line. Transformation: Stravinsky, Scarlatti, Brahms.

Brahms of course transforms Paganini, but Yuja Wang transforms Brahms by taking the (always permissible, but these days pretty unfamiliar) course of reshuffling the 24 variations to bring out a new range of contrasts and perspectives. In her own words, ‘transformation’ is evident in ‘Brahms transforming his theme 27 times; Ravel transforming the waltz by testing it to oblivion; and Stravinsky’s puppet.

Transformation highlights Yuja Wang’s penchant for piecing together high concept programs the public adores. As The New York Times observes, She seems to have everything: speed, flexibility, pianistic thunder, and interpretive nuance. She’s also a clever programme builder, successfully mixing shape-shifting works by Stravinsky, Brahms and Ravel with two Scarlatti sonatas. New York Times 26th November 2010. approaches repertory staples with original, illuminating ideas.
