Zhu Wang, an alumnus of Caramoor’s Evnin Rising Stars mentoring program and winner of the 2020 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, has been praised by The New York Times as “especially impressive” and “a thoughtful, sensitive performer” who balances “lyrical warmth and crisp clarity.” His intimate recital bridges piano literature from Germany, China, and America, from the realms of opera, ballet, and the afterlife.
