In 2008, the 21-year-old effervescent Yuja Wang played her first recital at the Verbier Festival only months after a remarkable debut concert in Boston. She performed Liszt’s Piano Sonata in B Minor, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, Scriabin’s Piano Sonata No. 2, and Ravel’s Valse. Her dizzying interpretation of Flight of the Bumblebee in this concert rocketed the young Chinese pianist to international success!
