Why See Mahler Chamber Orchestra with Mitsuko Uchida?
Mitsuko Uchida Performs Mozart
Widely acknowledged as the foremost Mozart interpreter of our time, Japanese-British keyboard virtuoso Mitsuko Uchida honed her penchant for making her bold judgements in her performances from a young age, rebelling against her teachers at the Vienna Academy of Music but subsequently wowing judges since her first competition in 1968. Over five decades, numerous awards and accolades (including Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire) and a myriad performances with the world's leading orchestras later, Uchida takes to the stage once more to perform a trio of works with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
Focusing her almost luminescent playing on Mozart's piano concerto's, the pre-eminent pianist will start the evening off with the classical master's athletic Piano Concerto No. 19, an exceptionally lyrical piece of both grace and vigour. This is followed by Three Pieces from Alban Berg's Lyric Suite, a soaring tribute to the twelve tone technique that mirrors the spirit of 20th-century Vienna and its pioneering artistic explorations. Things come to a close with Mozart once more, with Uchida leading his Piano Concerto No. 20. One of Mozart's most beloved and performed concertos, it burns with fiery, dark passions and a brooding intensity.
