A decade ago when she burst onto the scene, Yuja Wang was playing tough stuff that was not calculated to please an audience.
Now she has found an audience by other means, she’s going back to the tough stuff.
Look at this upcoming LA concert: Prokofiev and Scriabin sonatas, mingled with a little light Rachmaninov and Ligeti.
