Mitsuko Uchida

Mozart´s piano concertos No. 18 and No. 21 with Mahler Chamber Orchestra

Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart left behind twenty-seven piano concertos, practically creating his own genre – after all, a piano concerto by Mozart is something fundamentally different from one by Bach, Brahms, or Beethoven. Mozart, always the man of the stage, has the piano and orchestra quarreling, questioning, and flirting with each other. Bringing all of this to life is a high art, of which the exceptional Japanese-Austrian pianist Mitsuko Uchida is a genuine master. One of the leading Mozart interpreters of our time, Uchida was among the first to record his complete piano concertos and sonatas – CDs that have long since acquired cult status. Since then the artist has been continually refining her interpretations – together with such renowned partners as the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
