Supreme lyricism, technical virtuosity, poetic nuance—Grammy-nominated pianist Joyce Yang is the whole package. A native of Seoul, South Korea, Yang is a recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant and is known for crafting fascinating programs that showcase her remarkable pianism. Here, she performs selections from Tchaikovsky’s short and evocative character pieces The Seasons, and excerpts from Rachmaninoff’s Preludes, some of the finest Romantic piano music ever written. Guido Agosti’s rarely performed transcription of Stravinsky’s orchestral suite from the Firebird ballet is a marvel of color and texture. “Her attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance and velocity” (Washington Post).
