Mitsuko Uchida's scholarship of the works she performs and the energy she displays when playing have won her a dedicated following and a place as one of today's great piano legends. She has always been revered for her intense musical connection with the works of Mozart and Schubert; her many recordings of their works have become iconic and she has won numerous awards. In more recent years, Mitsuko Uchida has turned her attention to Beethoven. Her first disc of Beethoven piano sonatas earned great critical acclaim: "Anyone looking for an honest yet deeply sophisticated approach to Beethoven-- never theatrical, never merely scholarly--would do well to look to Ms. Uchida's new CD"--The New York Times Now Decca presents Ms. Uchida's new recording of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 28 and the Hammerklavier Sonata, considered to be Beethoven's most complex and challenging piano compositions.
