Yuja Wang has won the Gramophone Award in the Instrumental category, for her album ‘The Berlin Recital’. Gramophone’s David Fanning praised the album released by Deutsche Grammophon saying: “Anyone hitherto more put off than drawn in by Yuja Wang’s glamorous image may have to do some rethinking in the light of this recital.”
Ms. Wang was awarded Gramophone’s prestigious ‘Young Artist of the Year’ award in 2009. In December of 2018, ‘The Berlin Recital’ was listed as one of Gramophone’s best new classical albums. Read Gramophone’s full review, here.

The broadcast will also be available on Classic FM’s website and Facebook page, and on the Gramophone website until January 2020.
