Joyce Yang, piano with the Takács Quartet

“Vivid and beautiful playing” —The New York Times

Blessed with “poetic and sensitive pianism” (The Washington Post) and a “wondrous sense of color” (San Francisco Classical Voice), pianist Joyce Yang captivates audiences with her virtuosity, lyricism and interpretive sensitivity. She first came to international attention in 2005 by winning the silver medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Since then, she has received a Grammy nomination and performed with top orchestras. The first half of the concert features Yang in a solo recital. Local favorites, the Takács Quartet, join her on the second half to perform Dvorákʼs lyrical "Piano Quintet in A Major."
