"Wang...is a young pianist of immense talent, way beyond promise."
“Even for the most gifted young pianist, it takes a lot to be noticed. Xiayin Wang is clearly doing something right.”
"Wang sparkles with precision, solidifying and invigorating the quartet."
"Her treble scale-work is discreet, effortless, and pearly white of tone."
“Showy scores truly put Wang in her element. The five steely movements of Prokofiev's "Sarcasms," Op. 4, were unfailingly incisive and vital.”
“… an estimable grasp of pianistic color and an ability to maintain and illuminate a strand of melody within the thickest of textures.”
"...there is a moment when her repeated crystalline downward passages become like warm raindrop beckoning everything below to flower."
"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.”
"Her rhythm is filled with controlled energy, and when Brahms lets loose she is ready to ride."
"...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.
"...a pristine technique and a fine sense of style."
"Excellent recital of pianist Xiayin Wang... exuberant, robust, confident performance...."
