Yuja Wang the greatest pianist of the 21st Century
Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2020
As far as I'm concerned, and I come from old school of Van Cliburn, Leon Fleischer, Horowitz, Rubenstein and others, including Gary Graffman, who acted as her mentor when she started; Yuja Wang is one of the top pianists of all time, including these old timers, who often made mistakes. Technically, I've never seen anyone as perfect as she is; and as time has passed and she's matured, she's become one of the most expressive and passionate players I've ever witnessed. I thought when I saw Van Cliburn play that no one would match his technical skill, but Yuja Wang does. She's brought a new spirt and joy to classical music that's been missing for years. If she ever comes to your city, you must see her perform. She not only delivers the scheduled performance, but her encores are stunning; if she's convinced to play one. Highly recommended.
