Announcing Yuja Wang with your Colorado Symphony

The Colorado Symphony is thrilled to announce an upcoming collaboration with international piano superstar Yuja Wang taking place at Boettcher Concert Hall on December 18, 2024. Yuja and the Colorado Symphony will perform Stravinsky’s Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 led by conductor Eric Jacobsen. Eric and Yuja have a longstanding friendship and deep artistic connection, performing together often to create memorable musical moments through unique programming and dynamic performances.

Yuja Wang is celebrated for her charismatic artistry, emotional honesty and captivating stage presence. She has performed with the world’s most venerated conductors, musicians and ensembles, and is renowned not only for her virtuosity, but her spontaneous and lively performances, famously telling the New York Times ‘I firmly believe every program should have its own life, and be a representation of how I feel at the moment’.

Her skill and charisma were recently demonstrated in a marathon Rachmaninoff performance at Carnegie Hall alongside conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Philadelphia Orchestra. This historic event celebrating 150 years since the birth of Rachmaninoff, included performances of all four of his concertos plus the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in one afternoon and saw queues around the block for tickets on the day. The 2022/23 season also saw Yuja perform the world premiere of Magnus Lindberg’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, and further performances of the work throughout North America and Europe across the season.

Yuja was born into a musical family in Beijing. After childhood piano studies in China, she received advanced training in Canada and at the Curtis Institute of Music under Gary Graffman. Her international breakthrough came in 2007, when she replaced Martha Argerich as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Two years later, she signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and has since established her place among the world’s leading artists, with a succession of critically acclaimedperformances and recordings. She was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year in 2017, and in 2021 received an Opus Klassik Award for her world-premiere recording of John Adams’ Must the Devil Have all the Good Tunes? with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel.
