Mitsuko Uchida (piano)


At mid price for the first time - Uchida's only Schumann recording.
Mitsuko Uchida is most closely associated with the music of Mozart and Schubert. This recording from 1985 is her only recording of music by Schumann and it includes the composer's most popular solo piano works.
The disc was greeted with great critical acclaim when first released:
'I have the impression that her aim was to make them wholly and uniquely her own ... much of what we hear is as refreshingly imaginative as it is pianistically exemplary ... she relishes the fantasy and caprice of Carnaval with an arrestingly vivid immediacy of characterization.' Gramophone May 1995

Timing: 67:10

Recorded: Snape Maltings, May 1994
