Jill interviews one of today's most talked-about young pianists, 22-year-old Yuja Wang. A 2008 Curtis graduate of Chinese origin, Ms. Wang was recently named Gramophone Magazine's Young Artist of the Year for 2009.
She'll perform with The Philadelphia Orchestra led by Charles Dutoit on October 8th, 9th, and 10th at Verizon Hall. The following week, on October 13th, she'll make her orchestral debut with The Philadelphians at Carnegie Hall. At both venues she'll play Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16.
