Claudio Abbado's done it again. Between his divined appointees Daniel Harding and Gustavo Dudamel, his recent discovery is the 21-year-old Chinese pianist, Yuja Wang. She started playing piano at age 6, coached by her ex-ballerina mom. When she was 14, she transfered from Beijing to Philadelphia to study at Curtis, and is trailblazing through solo concerts and appearances.
Just imagine if she & Lang Lang devoted themselves to spawning mecha-babies. That'd be awesome. They'd eat pianos for lunch and raid the Steinway & Sons warehouse like a Las Vegas brunch buffet.
