YUJA UNAPPRECIATED BY OC CROWD

Miss Wang’s performance Tuesday night at Disney was amazing. Last night at Segerstrom was less so I think because the orange county crowd went there to see her sexy outfits and pyrotechnic piano playing. They did not understand (accept) Yuja’s mellower program of lesser known pieces. Let’s allow some diversity and experimentation. I loved it!

MOST MIXED RECITAL I'VE EVER HEARD..AND WHY WAS SHE SO UPSET??

Very strange recital. Yuja decided not to follow the written program, and seemed to be deciding in the moment what to play next, but this led to most of the audience not having a clue what they were listening to or when to applaud. The Scriabin (Sonatas #4 and 5) were spectacular, transcendental and technically phenomenal, as was Ravel Barque sur L'Ocean. But in my opinion Ms. Wang needs to rethink her Chopin and Brahms - wrong sound, wildly erratic rhythm - the mazurkas were bizarre. Berg Sonata was a big blur. And why was she so upset at the end of the concert? Audience clapped for almost 5 minutes before she came out, scowled and went backstage...no encore.

WANT TO LIKE IT

No question she is pianist virtuoso, but this afternoon’s performance was underwhelming

PUZZLING

Changing the program order added unnecessary confusion to a recital which included a number of pieces not often performed.

3.0 star rating Donald Davis from Vancouver, British Columbia

COSTUME AND OTHER MALFUNCTIONS

Having sat through a confusing first half during which a floor length garment got caught in a pedal I was not surprised to discover that several groups around me did not return after a lengthy interval during which a piano tuner worked hard to restore the much abused instrument. Why was Ms.Wang wearing sunglasses and why did she disappear so frequently from the stage?
