Mitsuko Uchida by Decca / Justin Pumfrey
Mitsuko Uchida’s "remarkable approach to the piano—with her ability to shift the weight and meaning of any line of music in the most brilliant and seamless ways—is a given,” wrote the Chicago Sun-Times of the legendary pianist. Uchida returns to Carnegie Hall to play and lead works by Mozart from the keyboard. From the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 19 to the dramatic Piano Concerto No. 20—a work much admired by Beethoven—Uchida will leave you spellbound.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor, K. 466 

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 became a favorite of Beethoven and figured prominently in his repertoire as a concert pianist. It’s not surprising since the concerto’s high drama and dark power would have certainly appealed to the latter composer’s stormy temperament. Movie fans will recognize the beautiful second movement; its slow, poetic melody unwinds on the piano as Salieri passes through the asylum bestowing benedictions in the unforgettable final scene of the film Amadeus.
