Xiayin Wang, pianist / Press

"Wang...is a young pianist of immense talent, way beyond promise."

Bender - American Record Guide

“Even for the most gifted young pianist, it takes a lot to be noticed. Xiayin Wang is clearly doing something right.”

Steve Smith - The New York Times

"Wang sparkles with precision, solidifying and invigorating the quartet."

"Her treble scale-work is discreet, effortless, and pearly white of tone."

Bender - American Record Guide

“Showy scores truly put Wang in her element. The five steely movements of Prokofiev's "Sarcasms," Op. 4, were unfailingly incisive and vital.”

David Ginsberg - The Washington Post

“… an estimable grasp of pianistic color and an ability to maintain and illuminate a strand of melody within the thickest of textures.”

Steve Smith - The New York Times

"...there is a moment when her repeated crystalline downward passages become like warm raindrop beckoning everything below to flower."

Bender - American Record Guide

"Scriabin's Fantasie in B Minor, Op. 28, was a luscious wash of color, infused with big swirls of sound. Her soon-to-be-released recording of the composer's music on the Naxos label should be a dandy.”

David Ginsberg - The Washington Post

"Her rhythm is filled with controlled energy, and when Brahms lets loose she is ready to ride."

Bender - American Record Guide

"...a voluptuous, intensely colored rendition of “La Valse,” by Ravel. Her go-for-broke bravado near the end did justice to this fanciful showpiece’s macabre undercurrents.

Steve Smith - The New York Times

"...a pristine technique and a fine sense of style."

New York Concert Review

"Excellent recital of pianist Xiayin Wang... exuberant, robust, confident performance...."
