Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Acclaimed for her “poetic and sensitive pianism” (Washington Post), Joyce Yang captivates audiences around the globe with her stunning virtuosity, heartfelt lyricism and vibrant musical personality. Yang first came to international attention as the Silver Medalist of the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. In the last decade, she has established herself as one of the leading artists of her generation. Her return to Meany features a program that ranges from Bach to Britten to Liszt, including the Hungarian master’s great, single-movement work, the Sonata in B Minor.

Vivid and beautiful playing.
