Yuja Wang, the internationally acclaimed classical pianist, will take over London’s Lightroom for six intimate concerts, performing a repertoire of pieces inspired by her response to David Hockney’s artworks.

Lightroom is home to spectacular artist-led immersive experiences. David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away),Lightroom’s debut show, has attracted over 230,000 visitors since opening in February.

This concert series will afford audiences a unique opportunity to experience Yuja Wang performing in Lightroom’s awe-inspiring showspace, where David Hockney’s artworks will help provide an extraordinary and atmospheric backdrop to Yuja and her piano. Live camera on Lightroom’s walls will provide a unique perspective on her virtuosic performance.

Lightroom is due to announce its next major show in the coming weeks, with Yuja Wang’s takeover representing the first in a series of special events that will accompany future shows, allowing artists of different genres to respond creatively to Lightroom shows.

Yuja Wang said: “As soon as I heard about Lightroom, I was immediately drawn to the possibility of fusing visuals with live music and creating immersive experiences.  I’m particularly delighted to be working on this project with projections by the great David Hockney, who I’ve been a fan of for many years and the audience will experience his art alongside piano performance like never before – it’s exciting and definitely not to be missed!”

Lightroom CEO Richard Slaney said: “Lightroom is designed as a space to inspire artists to create unique new work. We did that to inspiring effect with David Hockney, and now it’s a huge pleasure that a world class pianist like Yuja will in turn take inspiration from both David’s art and our production when performing these wonderful intimate concerts using the epic scale of Lightroom’s canvas.”

Following Yuja Wang’s sell out BBC Prom at the Royal Albert Hall, she will perform 6 shows at Lightroom on September 28th, 29th and 30th at 7pm and 9pm.
