Transformation is a carefully constructed solo program featuring Brahms, Ravel, Scarlatti and Stravinsky. Yuja Wang’s title for her recording reflects the Buddhist idea that life consists of constant change, and she finds its musical rationale in Brahms transforming his theme 27 times; Ravel transforming the waltz by testing it to oblivion, and Stravinksky’s puppet Petrushka being temporarily transformed into a human being before finally reverting to puppet-hood – in Yuja’s view, a “world between creation and destruction.”

Yuja Wang is a wondrously gifted pianist whose debut album of sonatas by Chopin, Liszt and Scriabin, with the stimulating addition of two Ligeti Etudes, suggests a combination of blazing technique and a rare instinct for poetry . . . Wang is young, wonderfully talented and trained, superbly recorded and, if this disc is anything to go by, she has the world at her feet. As a crowning touch her Ligeti Etudes are both musicianly and dazzlingly incisive. In the words of the publicist, “a star is born”. –Gramophone
