Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 18 & 19 - Mitsuko Uchida/Cleveland Orchestra

One of the greatest pianists of our time returns to two marvellous Mozart concertos. John Suchet's Album of the Week, 11 August 2014

Lauded as one of today's finest Mozart interpreters, Mitsuko Uchida continues her series of his great piano concertos, performed with the Cleveland Orchestra which she directs from the keyboard.

This latest live recording combines Mozart's B flat Major Concerto, No. 18 and the F Major Concerto, No. 19, two of the great series he wrote in Vienna in the mid-1780s. 

As should be expected, Uchida brings grace and flair to her performance. The Cleveland Orchestra too, with which Uchida has a truly tangible rapport, provide superbly subtle support.
