Yuja Wang slays Beethoven's monster piano piece — and makes it look easy

The Granada was packed with cheering fans Monday night. Yuja the Kid had come to take on Murray the Pro. Who would hammer the “Hammerklavier” the hardest?

Although the Pro has a 40-year career advantage, he has only lately begun tackling Beethoven’s ultimate monster piano sonata, to which he had brought his abundance of experience to his recital at Walt Disney Concert Hall six days earlier. He had lunged at the keyboard with an explosive ferocity unknown in this reflective 69-year-old player. He went straight for the solar plexus of every ivory key on the keyboard, unleashing a mystically powerful tone. He was never brutal, but nothing escaped his Beethovenian grip.

Now, it was the Kid’s turn. Hers is a 40-year age advantage. She’s known for her athletic speed, agility and accuracy. As if to level the playing field technically, she came out onto the stage of the Granada Theatre  so tightly squeezed into a red-orange gown and wearing platform heels so high that she could barely walk. The Kid eats the world’s greatest keyboard challenges for breakfast with one hand tied behind her back.

Believe it or not, Murray played faster and louder. He pummeled harder. Yuja floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, her hands hitting what our eyes couldn’t see. He emerged from his ordeal exhausted, hardly able to walk offstage. In the manner of the greatest virtuosos of yore, she made this great effort seem almost effortless and was ready for three amazing encores.
