Few pianists are as exciting in concert as Yuja Wang, and she is especially compelling when she embarks on a voyage of discovery through the pianistic repertoire as in this 2022 recital from Vienna's Konzerthaus. Beethoven is represented in the in the form of his Piano Sonata No. 18; Scriabin comes in the guise of the harmonically – and psychologically – complex Third Sonata; a dash of Spanish colour comes courtesy of Albéniz; and from Nikolai Kapustin comes Jazz-soaked virtuosity. An extended selection of encores culminates in one of the most beautiful melodies in the history of music, Gluck's, from his opera Orfeo ed Euridice.
