"Beethoven’s vision is of the cosmos. Mozart is about the drama and entanglements of human life and love. Schubert’s music is between life and death; he dreams, with his eyes on the far horizon. His music is at once personal and profound. Every note speaks and touches your soul.”

Mitsuko Uchida

Mitsuko Uchida is in the second and last leg of her two-year journey exploring Schubert’s piano sonatas. The series which presents six sonatas in two recitals at major venues in Europe and the US will include Musikverein in Vienna, Berlin Philharmonie and London’s Royal Festival Hall in the autumn, as well as the Paris Philharmonie for a single recital. Carnegie Hall, New York will follow in the spring. The Schubert cycle will also reach Schubert lovers in Japan this October in an extensive tour that will include two recitals at Suntory Hall.


As part of a three-year partnership with Southbank Centre in London, Mitsuko Uchida will also appear with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski in September and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in January. Amsterdam audiences will look forward to three performances of Mozart Piano Concerto no.23 with Bernard Haitink and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in December.
