UCSB Arts & Lectures - Hanzhi Wang, accordian

UCSB Arts & Lectures - Hanzhi Wang, accordian“Nothing beats the plaintive lusciousness of Wang’s instrument of choice... her Carnegie Hall debut [was] one of THE big accordion events of the year.” New York Music Daily

“Accordions: so hot right now. Once considered glamorous and sexy, then forgotten, the instrument is making a comeback.” The Atlantic

With impeccable technique and captivating stage presence, classical accordionist Hanzhi Wang comes to Santa Barbara following debuts last season at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. Wang’s mastery of her instrument is complemented by her creative programming, spanning her transcriptions of Baroque music, delightful tangos and contemporary works written for the instrument and for Wang herself. A 2017 Young Concert Artists First Prize Winner, her unconventional embrace of keyboard repertoire makes her an enthralling standout among today’s rising stars.
