Mitsuko Uchida performs music by Mozart and Schumann at this International Piano Series concert.
Uchida has long devoted much attention to the mainstream German and Viennese repertoire, but she also takes a keen interest in the music of today.
Opening with one of Mozart’s best-loved sonatas, Uchida continues with another Schumann masterpiece: Kreisleriana, a work by turns turbulent, nightmarish and mischievous, inspired by the supernatural tales of ETA Hoffmann.
The programme concludes with Schumann’s great C major Fantasie, Op.17 – a giant love song for the composer’s future wife, Clara Wieck.
