About This Performance

This concert was canceled due to COVID-19 virus concerns.

Mitsuko Uchida calls Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations “one of the greatest piano pieces ever written.” With its fearsome technical challenges and its remarkable breadth of emotion from the humorous to the visionary, it taps into the piercing clarity and poetic sensitivity of Uchida’s playing, alongside her mesmerizing intensity. “Only a few pianists regularly cross the threshold of mere excellence to transporting brilliance… Uchida can be included in that exclusive handful” (New York Times).
