One of the most inspirational, perceptive pianists performing today, Mitsuko Uchida is revered as much for her elegance and poise as for her boundless virtuosity.

With a long and distinguished history of acclaimed International Festival performances, she brings a passionate programme for her 2017 solo recital.

Opening with the disarming, radiant simplicity of Mozart’s Sonata K545, she unveils two dramatic masterworks by Schumann – the wild, eccentric Kreisleriana, and the majestic grandeur of the Fantasie in C, a sonata in all but name – alongside a recent work from brilliant young German composer Jörg Widmann.
