About

With the “pure poetry” of his playing (Seen and Heard International), pianist Derek Wang is drawing increasing acclaim from audiences and critics alike in wide-ranging appearances as soloist, collaborator, and communicator. A uniquely committed proponent of the original works and virtuosic transcriptions of Franz Liszt, Derek was awarded second prize at the 12th Liszt Utrecht competition in the Netherlands in September 2022, which followed on the heels of first prize at the inaugural New York Liszt Competition in 2021. Derek is widely praised for his ability to speak about music to audiences of all kinds, and in formats ranging from traditional pre-concert talks to podcasts and online media. Derek holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School, where he received a Kovner Fellowship and the Peter Mennin and Joseph W. Polisi Commencement Prizes.
