Booklet
While the outer appearance of Yuja Wang's Fantasia might make it appear to be an album of mysterious, delicate, or fanciful piano music, it is actually a high-powered collection of showstoppers that have been favorites of this pianist for many years. Wang's experience shows, too, because these are assured and dynamic performances that demonstrate her thorough knowledge of the music, her great physical prowess, and her impressive technical chops. She obviously enjoys taking on three of Rachmaninov's challenging Études-Tableaux and Horowitz's ferociously difficult Carmen Variations, and she makes the Liszt-Horowitz transcription of Saint-Saëns' Danse macabre an encore to beat all encores. But not everything is programmed for showing off, because Wang plays with considerable restraint and taste in the Scarlatti Sonata in G major, K. 455, and the Mélodie from Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, and her most expressive and compelling playing is on display in the selections by Alexander Scriabin, evidently one of her favorite composers. With Deutsche Grammophon's exceptional reproduction, Wang presents the music with a wide dynamic range, which ranges from the soft magical passages of the Schubert-Liszt Gretchen am Spinnrade to the steadily building crescendo of Dukas' L'apprenti sorcier, so this is an impressive demonstration of what she can do at the keyboard.
