Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Widely regarded as one of the foremost Mozart interpreters of our time: Mitsuko Uchida returns, conducting the orchestra herself from the piano, with live performances of two of Mozart's most popular concertos. Mozart entered the A major Concerto, K488 into his catalogue of works on March 2, 1786: A piano concerto. In the A major concerto, the meticulous accompaniment adds a softer, more intimate sound, which is also helped by the absences of festive trumpets and timpani. On March 24, 1786, Mozart entered the concerto in C minor, K491 in his catalogue. The piece calls for the largest orchestra that he ever used in a concerto: a flute, pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns and trumpets; timpani and strings. The expressive opening movement is shaped with its dramatic leaps and its lamenting chromatic lines.

Review

"Miss Uchida played gracefully and with the flair listeners have come to expect from her...She endows the solo line with a rightness and an inevitability, yet there is originality in the way she shapes every phrase, and remarkable subtlety in her coloration." -- New York Times

"We still had the thrill of Uchida, embodying Mozart's recollections of joy and sorrow with dancing subtlety and love." -- The Times, London
