DUE TO A FINGER INJURY, JOYCE YANG’S PERFORMANCE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 10/2/22 HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MARCH 19, 2023


“Vivid and beautiful playing” - THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Her attention to detail and clarity is as impressive as her agility, balance and velocity.” - WASHINGTON POST

“The sound is bold and modern, yet restrained. The precision of the fingerwork is astounding.” - BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
 

Blessed with “poetic and sensitive pianism” (The Washington Post) and a “wondrous sense of color” (San Francisco Classical Voice), Grammy-nominated pianist Joyce Yang captivates audiences with her virtuosity, lyricism, and interpretive sensitivity.

She first came to international attention in 2005 when she won the silver medal at the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. The youngest contestant at 19 years old, she took home two additional awards: Best Performance of Chamber Music (with the Takács Quartet), and Best Performance of a New Work. In 2006 Yang made her celebrated New York Philharmonic debut alongside Lorin Maazel at Avery Fisher Hall along with the orchestra’s tour of Asia, making a triumphant return to her hometown of Seoul, South Korea. Yang’s subsequent appearances with the New York Philharmonic have included opening night of the 2008 Leonard Bernstein Festival – an appearance made at the request of Maazel in his final season as music director. The New York Times pronounced her performance in Bernstein’s The Age of Anxiety a “knockout.”
