What a summer for pianist Joyce Yang! Her appearances at several top U.S. music festivals - including her Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival debut, as well as performances at Brevard (NC), Bravo! Vail Valley, and La Jolla Summerfest - garnered ovations from both critics and audiences. Reviewing Yang's performance with the Aspen Festival Orchestra and Jaap van Zweden, the Aspen Times wrote, "Yang provided a beautifully natural, pure performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3. ... She had the confidence to let the music be what it is without pushing or pulling on it."
As soloist with the Russian National Orchestra at Festival del Sole, "Joyce Yang, 25, brought the audience to its feet for her electrifying playing of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2," according to the Napa Valley Register. Yang's summer season ends with a return to the Hollywood Bowl and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Sep 8). She continues her close collaboration with the Milwaukee Symphony this fall and will be back again in February for her ongoing Rachmaninoff cycle with Edo de Waart.
