Yuja Wang is considered the next piano superstar. She plays so well, accurate and so quickly that her fans reverently christened her “The Girl with the flying fingers.” Yuja Wang became famous because of speed and technique. She caused a sensation, playing always in high heels as well as the tight skirts.
Raised in Beijing she has “spent” her childhood at the conservatory. At 14, Yuja Wang moved on to Canada and continued studying in Philadelphia. While studying and performing she was on the road to stardom. The keyboard artist is constantly on tour and took a day off in Berlin for a conversation with Cherno Jobatey.
