Franz Schubert: Schwanengesang - Mark Padmore & Mi
Mark Padmore, Mitsuko Uchida
Pianist Mitsuko Uchida and tenor Mark Padmore have received widespread acclaim for their 2022 performances of Schubert and Beethoven's song repertoire. "Two Schubert masters," wrote the New York Times in a review of their concert, "it's hard to avoid superlatives when writing about Mitsuko Uchida and Mark Padmore." Now Uchida and Padmore present their live recording from London's Wigmore Hall: they performed Schubert's "Schwanengesang" and Beethoven's only great song cycle "An die ferne Geliebte". With a lifetime of experience with this music, Uchida and Padmore are the perfect duo to interpret this great repertoire. Mitsuko Uchida has recorded for Decca Classics for over four decades. Her highly acclaimed discography, which includes the complete piano sonatas of Mozart and Schubert, has earned her two Grammy Awards, a Grammy nomination for her most recent album, two Gramophone Awards, and two BBC Music Magazine Awards. Mitsuko has long been hailed as one of the world's leading Schubert interpreters, and her latest album won the Piano Gramophone Award in 2022. Mark Padmore CBE is world-renowned for his songs. With a lifetime of experience, the tenor and pianist present two of the greatest works in the Lieder repertoire. Schubert's Schwanengesang, together with Beethoven's only song cycle, make the ideal pairing for this duo.
