5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular! 17 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow. This is a pretty spectacular recital. Unlike most of the usual technique-monsters coming out of the Far East, Yuja Wang has the right combination of pianistic wizardry (you need three eyes and eight hands to play the Stravinsky!) and musical insight to make this fascinating recital work. This Stravinsky is, dare I say it, better than the classic Pollini version, with greater subtlety in many places and with inner voices emerging I had never heard before. The Brahms is also a fabulous performance, and the two little Scarlatti sonatas are presented with great aplomb and charm. Only in the final Ravel Valse did I feel that the notes overpowered the message, but this may be as much Ravel's fault as the pianist's. One of the most enjoyable recitals I've heard in a long time.

This disc, very well recorded in 2010, includes two recordings to match 'live' performances available on DVD plus works by Brahms and Scarlatti. This widely varied program is a total success and unquestionably showcases, not just her dazzling technique, but also her sheer musicianship and her thoughtful approach to constructing a satisfyingly rewarding musical experience.

The two familiar items for collectors of DVDs are the opening Stravinsky Petrushka movements and the concluding Ravel La Valse. Both of these manage to recreate that frisson of the 'live' performances but with the enormous added advantage of much improved sound, even if the exciting and unbelievable visuals have to be lost. The Stravinsky Petrushka has been a spectacular recital piece for many pianists but, up to now, all have fallen short of the remarkable Pollini recording, also on DGG. Yuja Wang not only manages to match his whip-crack accuracy at speed but she also manages to phrase with an attention to light and shade that turns this piece from being a spectacular technical feat into a highly musical rendition too.

The Ravel also benefits from this attention to phrasing and light and shade. This is very important in a piece that is supposed to chart the fall of civilisation and using the waltz as the means to demonstrate this. Too often this piece is played for the excitement of a technical display piece as if being completely unaware of Ravel's more serious and darker intentions. Yuja Wang, both here and on her DVD recording, absolutely manages to convey this dark and frenzied collapse against the initial background of civilised sophistication. Like Stravinsky's Rite, this piece uses the most sophisticated means to portray the collapse of civilisation.
