Mitsuko Uchida has long devoted much attention to the mainstream German and Viennese repertoire, but she also takes a keen interest in the music of today.

She opens her first UMS concert since her 1998 debut with a delicate Mozart sonata, and rounds it out with the US premiere of a new work by the German composer Jörg Widmann. Two Schumann masterpieces, including Kreisleriana, a wildly inventive set of pieces inspired by characters from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s works, and his Fantasy in C Major, penned as a love song to his future wife, complete the program.

PROGRAM

Mozart Sonata in C Major, K. 545
Schumann Kreisleriana, Op. 16
Widmann Sonatina facile (U.S. Premiere)
Schumann Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17
