We were very honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with Li DeLun Music Foundation to co-host this special masterclass event on Friday October 19, 2007 featuring YuJa Wang.Born in Beijing in 1987, Yuja was drawn to piano at the age of six when she began studying music in China. She eventually enrolled at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, studying with Professors Ling Yuan and Zhou Guangren. Her earliest public performances took place in China, Australia and Germany. Yuja was a prizewinner in many competitions within China, as well as in Spain and Germany. In 2001, she won the first prize in the Junior Group of the Seiler International Piano Competition. She also won the third prize and was the recipient of the Special Jury Award at the First Japan Sendai International Music Competition.With her gifted talent and exquisite blend of energetic imagination of youth and mature sensitivity, Yuja has already established herself as one of the rising stars on the international scene. Her astonishing ability to memorize more than 20 piano concertos makes Yuja the most recognized name of her generation.
