Entertaining program, awesome talent

This is a very entertaining collection of previous popular pieces performed by Yuja Wang, including encore pieces and YouTube reruns. There are also several pieces never before published on commercial CD. However, the "older" popular pieces are now performed with newer viewpoints and/or nuances in style, perhaps "maturity" (?). Those following Yuja Wang's meteoric concert career in this decade via her busy concert appearances, recordings and YouTube features will find this revelation quite refreshing and original. Those hearing Yuja Wang play these pieces for the first time without having been previously awed on YouTube would of course still be awed and wondering why they have not been listening to her from the very start.
