Yuja Wang Plays Brahms, Schumann and Beethoven
Saturday, May 14, 2016
On May 14th, acclaimed pianist Yuja Wang performed a solo recital from Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium. Weaving together works across the romantic repertory, the program features a pair of ballades by Brahms; Schumann's Kreisleriana (based on the E.T.A. Hoffmann character, the eccentric conductor Johannes Kreisler); and finally Beethoven's deeply moving "Hammerklavier" Sonata.
WQXR artist-in-residence Anthony McGill, who is also the principal clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic, joined WNYC's John Schaefer to co-host this live broadcast.
