Mozart: Piano Concertos 9 & 21 / Uchida
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major, K271 "Jeunehomme" Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K467 'Elvira Madigan'
The definitive Mozart pianist of our time continues her Grammy Award-winning series of concerto recordings with No. 9 known as “Jeunehomme” and very popular No. 21. The Concertos Nos. 23 and 24 release in the series was a huge critical and popular success, already selling nearly 30,000 copies and winning a Grammy award. These extraordinary performances are the result of Mitsuko Uchida’s longstanding association with The Cleveland Orchestra. Unlike her first cycle of recordings for Philips, they feature Dame Mitsuko directing the orchestra herself, from the piano, delighting in a very special musical collaboration. “No pianist conveys the rapture of Mozart quite like Mitsuko Uchida does” (The Independent)
