About This Performance

“Only a few pianists regularly cross the threshold of mere excellence to transporting brilliance… Mitsuko Uchida can be included in that exclusive handful,” attests the New York Times. In a storied career spanning dozens of acclaimed recordings and breathless standing ovations the world over, Uchida has earned a reputation for magisterial performances and a sublimely elegant artistic temperament. Her PCMS recitals are always “must-see” events, her intensely moving interpretations of classical repertoire balancing sinew and sensitivity with crystalline articulation and vivid dynamic contrasts.
