REMARKABLE STAGE PRESENCE
“Interpretation passionate and technically flawless,
a remarkable stage presence in the spectacular setting of the string orchestra:
Hanzhi Wang, the young artist with huge talent.”

Praised for her engaging stage presence and performances that are technically and musically brilliant, Hanzhi Wang is the first accordionist to join the roster of Young Concert Artists in its 57-year history of discovering extraordinary musicians. Her concert career has already taken her around the globe with performances in Europe and Asia. Ms. Wang will make her debut in the Young Concert Artists Series in New York, opening the 2018-19 season in The Peter Marino Concert at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall. Her Washington, DC debut in the Young Concert Artists Series at the Kennedy Center will be co-presented with Washington Performing Arts.
RECENT CD RECORDINGS & VIDEO
On August 10, 2018, Naxos released Hanzhi Wang 's accordion solo album "On the Path to H.C. Andersen". With this unique programme Hanzhi Wang takes us into the ‘fairy-tale world of the accordion’ in works by Danish composers that explore both the darkness and luminosity of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous stories. Poignant reflection and tragic depiction infuse Martin Lohse’s Menuetto and The Little Match Girl (dedicated to Hanzhi Wang), while his post-minimalist Passing series forms adventurous ‘mobiles’ of dancing light. From Jesper Koch’s quixotic Jabberwocky to Svend Aaquist’s evocative Saga Night, this new repertoire for a relatively recent concert instrument is both dramatic and uplifting

But a Chinese accordionist who honed her craft in Copenhagen is helping to promote the squeezebox’s potential in classical music.Hanzhi Wang last December became one of four musicians to win the Young Concert Artists auditions and the first accordionist to join the agency’s roster in its 57-year history. Unlike other noted performers on the instrument, the 27-yearold Wang has no plans to move into the crossover realm.
