Yuja Wang in recital

Yuja Wang close up portrait

We’re sorry to announce that Yuja Wang has cancelled her European recital tour, which included a concert at the Barbican on Tuesday 31 March.

Six of her concerts had been cancelled by venues in mainland Europe in response to restrictions brought in by Governments relating to COVID-19, making it impossible for her to continue the tour.

All bookers are being contacted, but we would like to apologise for the disappointment this is likely to cause. Yuja Wang and the Barbican will work to reschedule the concert in the future.

‘Her combination of technical ease, colouristic range and sheer power has always been remarkable, as has the sense that she is entirely at one with the instrument.‘
