CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Monday, February 26, 2018 | 8 PM

Mitsuko Uchida, Piano

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Beethoven’s presence hovers about Schubert’s C-Minor Sonata, a large-scaled work of restless spirit and austere beauty, while the A-Major Sonata’s genial songlike melodies and relaxed tone recall the composer’s “Trout” Quintet. The Sonata in G Major—a favorite of Schumann’s—is a work of meditative grandeur in which the outward suggestion of a timeless waltz gives way to an expansive and deeply affecting landscape.
