The Berlin Album - Yuja Wang's impassioned survey of landmark works by Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Ligeti and Prokofiev

Yuja Wang stirs memories of legendary artists with interpretations of boundless imagination, jaw-dropping technical command and transcendent power

Companion EP captures beauty and eloquence of Yuja Wang's Berlin encore pieces.

Yuja Wang's philosophy of music is both simple and profoundly complex. “I want to relate all life to music,” she recently told veteran British critic Fiona Maddocks. The Beijing-born pianist's latest album for Deutsche Grammophon, set for international release on 23 November 2018, captures the white heat of solo works by Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Scriabin and Ligeti, a trio of Russians together with one of the late 20th-century's greatest composers. The Berlin Recital was recorded live this summer at the Berlin Philharmonie's Kammermusiksaal during Yuja's extensive solo tour of North America and Europe. The Yellow Label also recorded her sublime series of Berlin encore pieces to form a separate EP, which spans everything from the riffs and roulades of Nikolai Kapustin's jazz-tinged Toccatina to Earl Wild's sonorous transcription of the Pas de Quatre from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.

After his exciting journey into the musical tradition of Eastern Europe (Journey East), the Baroque Sound-scapes of J.S. Bach (Bach), the Russian melodies of P.I. Tchaikovsky (Tchaikovsky), Nemanja Radulovic now embarks on a musical journey through the Orient - from Armenian reality to Persic daydream.

This Oriental album includes a newly arranged “Scheherezade” as well as Khachaturian's highly virtuosic violin concerto.

Nemanja's a personal approach when creating an album is essential. The Serbian word “Baïka” translates to “tale” or “fairytale” and was chosen by him personally, because everything on this album feels like “Baïka” to him.

Commissioned for Nemanja's ensemble Double Sens, Serbian composer and arranger Aleksandar Sedlar re-visited the fate of Scheherazade, queen and storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights. His composition is based on the Scheherazade Suite Op. 35 by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and intriguingly recounts tales and treasures from the centuries-old epos. There will be a music video of the 1st movement.

To record Aram Khachaturian's violin concerto Nemanja chose Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sascha Goetzel, a pairing that already follows a successful collaboration on stage. The beautiful concerto is performed and recorded very rarely, which may be blamed on its virtuosity. Nemanja is considered as the current specialist of this work, adding a very personal and individual interpretation.

'Concerto Köln - the silver-toned Rolls-Royce of period ensembles - handles this journey with suave style and flawless control…Valer Sabadus makes for a refined Farinelli, and where his smoky voice lacks in power, it gains in agility.
