San Francisco Symphony and Yuja Wang

Yuja Wang, a firebrand whose “…superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence is second to none” (San Francisco Chronicle) brings her artistry to Beethoven’s poetic Piano Concerto. Brahms took 20 years to complete his First Symphony, so difficult was it for him to follow in Beethoven’s giant footsteps. The dramatic opening boldly announces a torrent of emotions – and great melodies carry all the way through to the final measure.
