Russian National Orchestra with Yuja Wang, piano

International superstar pianist Yuja Wang joins the Russian National Orchestra for a program of Russian masterpieces, showcasing her dazzling technique, unique interpretation and breathtaking power in Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2. This concert also features Stravinsky's ballet score "The Firebird."

Twenty-eight year old pianist Yuja Wang is widely recognized as one of the most important artists of her generation. She has been universally praised for her authority over the most complex technical demands of the repertoire, the depth of her musical insight, as well as her fresh interpretations and charismatic stage presence.

The Russian National Orchestra maintains an active international tour schedule, appearing in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Guest soloists who have toured with the RNO include Martha Argerich, Yefim Bronfman, Lang Lang, Pinchas Zukerman, Sir James Galway, Joshua Bell, Itzhak Perlman and Renée Fleming. The RNO was ranked in 2008 by Gramophone as one of the top 15 world's best orchestras.

"...a practically superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none." — San Francisco Chronicle
