(June 5, 2013): Mitsuko Uchida – Fantasia for Piano in C Minor, KV 475 (Mozart)

From the 1986 album, Mozart: 3 Piano Sonatas, KV 270, 457 & 576; Fantasia in C, KV475. During the 1980s, Uchida built up a particular reputation as a Mozart interpreter — ironic for someone who did not like Mozart’s music when studying it at the Vienna Academy. She received notice for outstanding performances of the Mozart sonatas in London and Tokyo in 1982, and recorded a universally acclaimed set of the complete sonatas for Philips. Uchida also appeared as soloist and conductor with the English Chamber Orchestra in a cycle of the complete Mozart concerti during 1985-1986. She eventually recorded these for Philips as well, with the ECO conducted by Jeffrey Tate.
