. . . Wang is a force of nature . . . With concerti, Wang feeds off the energy from the orchestra. In her recent performance and upcoming CD with Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, the energy was palpable.
. . . [a] piano sensation. . . In the highly competitive world of classical piano, the diminutive Wang swings like a heavyweight, having impressed audiences all over the world with her technical prowess and broad repertoire that includes many of the most difficult pieces ever written for the instrument.

. . . a brilliant showcase for pianist Yuja Wang and maestro Gustavo Dudamel, two of the biggest sensations on the label . . . Wang's playing is clear and generally well-balanced in the audio mix . . . [Prokofiev 2]: the solo part is always audible, and the accompaniment is, for the most part, quite transparent . . . this exciting performance really deserves top billing . . .

It is a pleasure to appreciate the qualities and excitement of a live recording without distracting noises from the audience. And speaking of excitement, if there is one word to describe these performers, it is "exciting." On this record, we simply have two of the most electrifying musicians of the day accompanied by an orchestra that played a concert at Carnegie Hall that Wang described as "the most exciting concert I've been to." With this much enthusiasm by the soloist, conductor and orchestra, great things were bound to happen. And they did . . . [Prokofiev]: a wonderful addition [to great recordings] and worth every minute . . . . Unlike the Rachmaninoff, the Second Piano Concerto by Prokofiev is less well known, and it is here, I think, that the Dudamel-Wang duo really knock the ball out of the park. Wang displays a deep understanding of the work, and Dudamel's direction is spot on. In both concertos, Dudamel let's us hear Wang; the orchestra is truly there to accompany the soloist. This is really a must-have disc for anyone who is a fan of the piano concerto repertory or of Wang or Dudamel. If this disc is any indication of the special musical relationship between the two, we can only hope that there are many more recordings to come.

“Lang Lang has the necessary power and athleticism to bring tremendous energy and drive to [Prokofiev's] more motoric writing...[he] sails through the passagework [of the Bartok] with exemplary clarity...The problem in the outer movements rests with the pianist's tendency to make everything sound harsh and percussive”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2013

“Lang Lang gives a persuasive account of the Prokofiev. His finely observed detail..., the full use of the piano's sumptuous sonority and dynamic range and his effortless technical mastery would excite anyone's admiration...[in the Bartok] Lang Lang and Rattle are hugely impressive but, for my taste, a shade too polite.”

MusicWeb International

8th November 2013

“Immediately [the Prokofiev] explodes into life with Lang Lang’s sparkling playing with seemingly boundless reserves of energy...Outstanding in the opening [of the Bartók] is Lang Lang’s rhythmic potency borders on the demonic...Under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle the Berliner Philharmoniker is highly persuasive and sympathetic. Not for the first time the woodwind excel - marvellous.”

The Arts Desk

12th October 2013

“How smart of Sony to have recorded [Lang Lang] in repertoire which plays to his strengths. This Prokofiev 3 is exceptionally good – thunderous when it needs to be, and always rhythmically alert. And Simon Rattle is a supremely effective partner...[the Bartók] makes for an unexpected, rewarding coupling.”

The Independent on Sunday

****

“Superloud and racily paced...It all gives a whole new meaning to the words “Flash, bang, wallop”, but it’s difficult to resist the energy, brio and sheer unabashed showmanship of the whole package.”

The Times

****

“this is a performance [of the Prokofiev] that glides by, impeccably beautiful and fleet, yet a trifle short of character. Still, Lang Lang’s easy virtuosity is delicious; so is the absence of keyboard thumping...[the Bartok] offers genuine bite, whether from Lang Lang’s fingers or the bracing snarl of the Berlin brass.”
