noon concert

I went to hear Gary Graffman who does more with one hand than some pianists do with both. & it was a good experience.

he shared the program with one of his students. I was enchantd with Yuja Wang as soon as the 19 y/o came on stage. she's tiny & gorgeous. she wore a drop-dead black gown with subtle rose piping. Wang began with a Haydn sonata which immediately reveald we were in the presence of a superb musician. she then playd Stravinsky's "3 Movements from Petrouchka" & I thot I'd swoon. mastery & passion combind. this is an artist whose career must be followd. look for her.
