Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Mozart Sonata in F K533/K494 24’
Beethoven 33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli, Op.120 60’
Mitsuko Uchida’s ability to turn any concert hall into an intimate space is the perfect match for Snape’s warm acoustic. Her renowned lightness of touch and luminous tone in Mozart’s sonatas is a joy to experience. Uchida also takes on the challenge of what she describes as ‘one of the greatest piano pieces ever written’ – Beethoven’s grand celebration of the seemingly infinite creative possibilities provided by the simplest musical materials.
‘only a few [pianists] regularly cross the threshold of mere excellence to transporting brilliance… Mitsuko Uchida can be included in that exclusive handful.’
