BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Renowned pianist Joyce Yang’s dazzling artistry will be showcased in the electrifying Third Piano Concerto of Sergei Prokofiev at the King Center on March 14.
The drama and rhythmic intensity of Beethoven’s thrilling Egmont Overture is the perfect counterpart to the lyricism and epic grandeur of Schubert’s symphonic masterpieces, the Great Ninth Symphony.
Yang came to international attention in 2005 when she won the silver medal at the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
The youngest contestant, she took home two additional awards: the Steven De Groote Memorial Award for Best Performance of Chamber Music (with the Takàcs Quartet) and the Beverley Taylor Smith Award for Best Performance of a New Work.
Since her spectacular debut, Yang has blossomed into an “astonishing artist” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), and she continues to appear with orchestras around the world.
