Concert review: Mitsuko Uchida at Royal Festival Hall

I am a great admirer of Japanese pianist, Mitsuko Uchida. Not just her exquisite touch, and sensitivity to the score, but also her ability to bring intimacy even to the biggest performance spaces – as she did in her concert at the Royal Festival Hall on 7 March, part of the Southbank Centre’s excellent International Piano Series.

  1. Lovely review, thanks. Late Schumann is very difficult to do successfully, I think. It can sound rather confused, unfocused and messy. But I would expect nothing less than perfection from Uchida. It must’ve been grand.
