Classical pianist and YouTube sensation Yuja Wang is making her Celebrity Series of Boston debut on Friday night, and there is some debate in the classical world about whether or not the dresses she wears make for proper attire.
What do you think? Should it matter what a classical pianist wears while performing?
Plays Sergei Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3, aka Rach 3, one of the most difficult songs to play in the world, the notes on the sheet music is described as being so dense it looks like a phonebook.
World shits itself because of what she’s wearing.
The world would rip a woman to shreds over her socks before daring to acknowledge her accomplishments.
The classical world that has a problem with what she wears can go shove one of her stiletto heels up their butts. Ooo orange and purple are so risqué…oh no I can see her arms and legs..it’s ruining the music!!! She can play naked. In her pjs. In a clown suit. Or in a business suit. Same with a guy, though I’m not sure there would be talk about whether he was “classy” or “provocative.”
"I’ve got a whole stack of books in my cart. Most of them are advance copies. I know a place where they get thrown out." “How many books have you read?” “Thousands.” “So why are you homeless?” “I’ve tried to work a job a bunch of times. But then I get sad, and then I get high, and things fall apart.”
