“Only a few pianists regularly cross the threshold of mere excellence to transporting brilliance… Mitsuko Uchida can be included in that exclusive handful” (New York Times). In a storied career spanning dozens of acclaimed recordings and 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.

Schubert: Sonata in C Minor, D. 958
Schubert: Sonata in A Major, D. 664
Schubert: Sonata in G Major, D. 894

 

This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with David Dubal

She is renowned for her interpretations of Mozart, Schubert, and Beethoven, both in the concert hall and on CD, but she has also illuminated the music of Berg, Schoenberg, Webern and Boulez.
