Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand with the San Francisco Symphony

“That left the latest appearance by pianist Yuja Wang — charismatic, technically dazzling and artistically persuasive as ever — to address the pleasure principle pure and simple. In Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, Wang’s playing was a starburst of wit and dark expressivity, from the steely strut of the parallel chords that open the jaunty central section of this one-movement work to the intricate polyphony of the cadenza that precedes its close.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Using half of her regular facility in Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, Wang played more expressively than I’ve ever heard her. Delicate moments, and especially the cadenza’s fluttering cascades, were exceptional. Warmed up, I enjoyed as much Wang’s encore, Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in G Minor, Op. 23 No. 5.”
