“She is an unbelievable musician and I honestly don’t understand how she can make her fingers move as rapidly over the keyboard as she does.”

“Her virtuoso technique was flawless, and her facial expressions matched the mood of the passages she played. Her energy and reach were such that at times it seemed she might literally cascade from the piano bench or run out of keyboard.”

– Michael Muckian, Isthmus

Joyce Yang Plays Prokofiev
Troubled with depression and hearing loss, Schumann reached deep to create the uplifting Symphony No. 2, a Beethovenian triumph over pessimism and despair. And Prokofiev’s third piano concerto radiates vitality and confidence. The power and agility of Joyce Yang is a perfect match for this demanding masterwork.
