Mitsuko Uchida's Mozart

Wednesday, September 9, 2009 ·

Decca Music Group has just released a live recording of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23, K.488, and Piano Concerto No. 24, K.491, conducted and performed by pianist Mitsuko Uchida with The Cleveland Orchestra.

"Mozart himself would certainly have smiled at these performances," writes Laurence Vittes in Audiophile Audition. "Her interpretive voice, of course, is uniquely her own, a thing of beauty and shy caution merging with the orchestra and the recording team in a marriage, like Figaro’s, that places fun before responsibility."

The recording was made during live performances at the Orchestra’s home, Severance Hall in Cleveland, on December 4 and 6, 2008.
