Yuja Wang, one of the most exciting and dynamic pianists of our time, joins forces with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra as their newest Artistic Partner. The collaboration promises to bring a fresh perspective to our music-making, with a focus on projects where Yuja leads the orchestra from the piano.
The inaugural tour of this exciting partnership will take place in January 2024, including compositions by a.o. Stravinsky, Janáček and Gershwin when Yuja and the MCO will explore pieces that are not often performed, with a particular emphasis on major 20th-century composers. Some of these works are often overlooked, but they offer a wealth of opportunities for exploration and discovery. With Yuja at the helm, the MCO is sure to bring these hidden gems to life in new and exciting ways. Further plans include tours through Europe, North America and Asia.
