“Yuja Wang, Boston Symphony Orchestra outstanding at Tanglewood”

Ken Ross, Mass Live

“Wang possesses the amazing ability to vividly bring a composer’s music to life and make it sound like something she created herself.

On Sunday, Wang gave a passionate, powerful, nuanced performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood under the direction of conductor Andris Nelsons.

Wang has a long, rich history with the BSO dating back to 2007, when she filled in for Argerich who could not play then with the BSO for health reasons. I was at one of those stunning concerts in March 2007 in Boston featuring Wang performing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Since then, Wang has matured into an artist capable of conjuring a wide array of emotions through her exquisite playing. And like the other greats, one of the things that makes Wang such a joy to watch is how easy she makes even the most complicated compositions sound.”
