Concerts with Maestro Jakub Hrůša and the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln

On June 15 & 16, Yuja Wang returns to Germany for two concerts with the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln. Under the baton of Jakub Hrůša, Yuja will perform with the ensemble in a symphonic program of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 5 and Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben. The concert on June 15 will take place at the Kölner Philharmonie, and on June 16 at the Philharmonie Essen. Yuja performed Prokofiev’s ground-breaking concerto previously with the National Symphony Orchestra, receiving rave reviews:

Wang attacked the solo part of Prokofiev’s concerto with the fury of a whirling dervish. Her percussive touch, all jabs and stinging attacks, was a hard-edged thrill in this tour de force work. She hit all the marks with remarkable clarity and a disarming nonchalance.” (Washington Classical Review)
