September 21: Pianist Yung-Chiu Wang

Pianist Yung-Chiu Wang performs Franz Schubert’s Sonata in G Major, D. 894, and Robert Schumann’s Carnaval, op. 9.

Yung-Chiu Wang has performed in concerts worldwide and appeared in journals in multiple languages, including the cover page of Germany’s Dortmunder Rundschau. She received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the University of Wisconsin for her performance of the rarely played Ignacy Jan Paderewski Piano Concerto and Vladimir Horowitz’s “Carmen Variations,” for which no score existed. (Wang learned the work from Horowitz’s recording.) She has performed chamber music with members of major orchestras, including the London Symphony, BBC Symphony, Boston Symphony, and Taiwan National Symphony, as well as with faculty members from major institutions, such as Yale University and Manhattan School of Music. Wang studied at Royal Academy of Music in London and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She has been on the faculty of Houston Baptist University and Texas A&M University.
