Yuja Wang Cancels in California; Philadelphia Recital Goes On

Pianist Yuja Wang canceled four recitals in California recently. A doctor advised rest for a sore arm, her publicist said. But the Curtis grad is in New York now practicing for her recital Thursday at the Kimmel Center.

"She is feeling fine and her arm is not sore any longer, so she is good to go this week for her recital at the Kimmel Center," her spokeswoman said.

Her program includes Prokofiev's Sonata No. 6, Liszt's arrangement of Three Lieder by Schubert, Schumann's Symphonic Etudes, and Scriabin. Looks like plenty of tickets remain.
