Magisterial pianist Mitsuko Uchida in her second Cal Performances at Home event! In this streaming presentation of the live March 27th concert at Zellerbach Hall, Uchida and the dynamic Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) perform a program that draws a line from Henry Purcell’s uniquely English form of Baroque music to Mozart’s Viennese masterworks.

Uchida, “one of the leading Mozarteans of our day” (Chicago Tribune), is a revered figure of the concert stage—who gained renown early in her career for her complete recorded cycles of Mozart’s concertos and sonatas. The program features two concertos composed in the winter of 1785–86, when Mozart was at the height of his genius: the A major concerto is best known for its magnificent slow movement; the C minor concerto for its bold inventiveness. Rounding out the program, the strings of the MCO are featured in a selection of fantasias by Purcell, brilliant compositions that cap an uncommonly fertile era of viol consort music.

“Few pianists are better exponents of the modern style in Mozart than Uchida, with her constantly alert phrasing and crystalline touch, while the responsiveness of the MCO, playing on mainly modern instruments but in a historically informed manner, was never less than absorbing” (The Guardian).
