Hanzhi Wang, accordion

Performance Information

Prepare to have your expectations defied and your ears delighted by the sound, technique, texture, and repertoire of the accordion.

Close your eyes while listening to Hanzhi Wang’s Bach, and you will mistake her accordion for a harpsichord. Or an organ. Or four musicians at once. Wang’s formidable mastery of her instrument and captivating stage presence are complemented by her creative programming, spanning transcriptions of Baroque music, delightful tangos, and contemporary works written for the instrument and for Wang herself. Her embrace of transcriptions of the keyboard repertoire—including works on this program by Bach, Mozart, and Moszkowski —make her an unconventional yet captivating choice to join the emerging pianists in this season’s Hayes Series.

Program includes solo works by BACH, GUBAIDULINA, MOZART, LOHSE, and MOSZKOWSKI, and PIAZZOLLA tangos with the Zorá Quartet
