Yuja Wang kicks off her “Perspectives”, a series of 6 concerts she’s curated with Carnegie Hall for the 2018/19 season. In her first concert, she collaborates with renowned percussionist Martin Grubinger and his fellow percussionists Alexander Georgiev, Leonhard Schmidinger, and Martin Grubinger Sr. The ensemble will first perform at the University of Michigan on October 24, and follow with her Perspectives concert on October 26 at Carnegie Hall.
Ms. Wang, the daughter of a percussionist father, is a longtime collaborator with Martin Grubinger and his quartet, having recently performed together this summer at the Salzburg Festival and at the KotorArt International Festival. Their highly anticipated program features pieces arranged by Grubinger’s father, Martin Grubinger Sr., with all pieces premiering in New York City for the first time.
