Yuja Wang, piano
Martin Grubinger, percussion

Performance
 

Yuja Wang, a phenomenal young pianist who made her UMS debut 10 years ago, exudes a dramatic sense of style and flair.

For the 2018-19 season, she was selected to anchor one of two Carnegie Hall “Perspectives” series and given free rein to program five concerts of her choosing. Her UMS concert is a warm-up for the first of these, featuring daring arrangements of Stravinsky and Bartók with the creative percussionist Martin Grubinger and the Percussive Planet Ensemble.

PROGRAM

Stravinsky The Rite of Spring (arr. M. Grubinger Sr.)
Bartók Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion (1937) (arr. M. Grubinger Sr.)
John Psathas One Study
Arturo Márquez Danzon No. 2 (arr. Leticia Gómez-Tagle)
