Boston Globe: Pianist Yuja Wang dazzles with Shostakovich concerto at the BSO

“Nothing about Wang’s performance was understated, from the spiky but not overly aggressive sound that seemed to leap out of the piano to her dressed-to-slay getup… She relaxed into the second movement’s plainspoken waltz, adding a Debussy-esque watercolor wash to some passagework. But the big and bold was never far away, and the grandest fireworks show came at the end with Shostakovich at his most prankish; she stormed through the cadenza, which samples Beethoven’s “Rage Over a Lost Penny,” and Rolfs’s trumpet led the charge through the fanfares after.”
