Ever since Joyce Yang distinguished herself at the 2005 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition – where, at 19, she was the youngest entrant in the competition – critics have consistently singled out the four qualities that have made her an exceptional performer: “vivid and beautiful playing” (The New York Times), “astonishing virtuoso with tremendous suggestive power and imagination (BBC Music Magazine). Accompanied by the musicians of I Musici de Montréal, Joyce Yang will give us a chance to hear The Four Temperaments, four surprise-filled movements for piano and strings that German composer Paul Hindemith created for legendary Russian choreographer Balanchine, who turned it into a magnificent ballet.
