La Jolla Music Society Presents Mitsuko Uchida

The La Jolla Music Society is pleased to present the talent of pianist Mitsuko Uchida on Friday, March 28, as part of the Society’s Frieman Family Piano Series.

Mitsuko Uchida is a performer who brings a deep insight into the music she plays through her own search for truth and beauty. She is renowned for her interpretations of Mozart, Schubert, and Beethoven, both in the concert hall and on CD, but she has also illuminated the music of Berg, Schoenberg, Webern and Boulez for a new generation of listeners. Her recording of the Schoenberg Piano Concerto with Pierre Boulez and the Cleveland Orchestra won four awards, including The Gramophone Award for Best Concerto. Amongst many current projects, Uchida has recently been recording a selection of Mozart’s Piano Concerti with the Cleveland Orchestra, directing from the piano: all of the discs in this series have received critical acclaim and one won a Grammy Award in 2011.

Mitsuko Uchida performs with the world’s finest orchestras and musicians.  Some recent highlights have been her Artist-in-Residency at the Cleveland Orchestra, where she directed all the Mozart concerti from the keyboard over a number of seasons.  She has also been the focus of a Carnegie Hall Perspectives series entitled ‘Mitsuko Uchida: Vienna Revisited’.  She has featured in the Concertgebouw’s Carte Blanche series where she collaborated with Ian Bostridge, the Hagen Quartet, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as well as directing from the piano a performance of Schönberg’s Pierrot Lunaire.  Uchida has also been Artist-in-Residence at the Vienna Konzerthaus, Salzburg Mozartwoche, Lucerne Festival and with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, where she performed a series of chamber music concerts and a Beethoven Piano Concerti cycle with Sir Simon Rattle.

 Mitsuko Uchida has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to aiding the development of young musicians and is a trustee of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.  She is also Director of the Marlboro Music Festival. In May 2012 she was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold Medal.  In June 2009 she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

The March 28 performance will feature Schubert,  Sonata in G Major, D. 894; and Beethoven , Thirty-Three Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli, Op. 120, as well as a prelude, to be announced. The prelude begins at 7 p.m.; the main performance at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 – $80. The performance will take place at the MCASD Sherwood Auditorium, 700 Prospect Street, La Jolla.
