Mitsuko Uchida plays Mozart and Schumann at Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

A delicate Mozart sonata, romantic fire and divine repose from Schumann, and a new Jörg Widmann work commissioned by Carnegie Hall spotlight Mitsuko Uchida’s tremendous versatility. Mozart’s C-Major Sonata features the gentle “In an 18th-Century Drawing Room” theme and remains one of the composer’s most beloved sonatas. An eon from Mozart’s mannered work is Schumann’s tumultuous music; Clara Wieck once said to her future husband, “Sometimes your music actually frightens me.” She might have been speaking of Schumann’s Kreisleriana, his wildly inventive set of character pieces inspired by a character from ETA Hoffmann’s works. A passionate love letter to Clara, Schumann pours his devotion into every phrase of the Fantasy in C Major. —carnegiehall
