Wang and Petrenko in Jerusalem

Ury Eppstein, The Jerusalem Post

“Prokofiev, still considered ultra-modern in the 20th century, not so long ago, sounds today almost classic. Which proves that, although the music obviously does not change, tastes do.

The work’s soloist, Beijing-born Yuja Wang, is a phenomenal virtuoso. A veritable bombshell of explosive energy, hardly believable from such a frail-looking figure, she also displayed utmost sensitivity and fascinating delicacy in the work’s lyrical, melodious passages. Maturity of expression, at her tender age, in addition to her extraordinary technical abilities, made her performance a breathtaking, outstanding experience.”
