Internationally-acclaimed pianist, Yuja Wang will release her new album of solo works, The Berlin Recital, on November 23 on Deutsche Grammophonon - a survey of landmark works by the late-romantic era and 20th century composers: Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Ligeti and Prokofiev. In anticipation of the full recital release, a digital-only EP of Encores is available today. The album was recorded live in Berlin, as part of a North-American and European tour.

Yuja Wang's philosophy of music is both simple and profoundly complex. "I want to relate all life to music," she recently told veteran British critic Fiona Maddocks. The Beijing-born pianist's latest album captures the white heat of solo works by Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Scriabin and Ligeti, a trio of renowned Russians paired with one of the late 20th century's greatest composers. The Berlin Recital was recorded live this summer at the Berlin Philharmonie's Kammermusiksaal during Yuja's extensive solo tour of North America and Europe. The Yellow Label also recorded her sublime series of Berlin encore pieces to form a separate EP, which spans everything from the riffs and roulades of Nikolai Kapustin's jazz-tinged Toccata to Earl Wild's sonorous transcription of the Pas de Quatre from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.
