Piano recital Yuja Wang
The outstanding pianist Yuja Wang, whose virtuosity never fails to astonish, returns for her third recital in the Wiener Konzerthaus. She took the world of classical music by storm with her breathtaking technique, which is not simply playing to the gallery, but is combined with an exquisite musicality. Asked which composer lies particularly close to her heart, she immediately shoots back: Chopin. His 24 Préludes op. 28 are on the programme of Yuja Wang’s recital in the Wiener Konzerthaus.

Miklós Perényi / Sir András Schiff
Sir András Schiff and his compatriot Miklós Perényi they will perform Beethoven’s complete works for cello and piano. The concerts will also mark the end of the special portrait series dedicated to Schiff. Like the pianist’s, the repertoire of cellist Perényi is wide and includes contemporary works. His recordings of the Dvořák and Ligeti concertos enjoy cult status. His playing is characterised by virtuosity, a clear and focussed tone and an exquisite sense of style and taste. Schiff is his ideal partner, but it’s a partnership that also allows room for personal traits, too.
