Dame Mitsuko at the Wigmore Hall…..the sublime remedy in these troubled times



One of the marvels of our age Mitsuko Uchida playing Schubert.
Sublime perfection that had me hurrying to Perugia to hear the marvels again that she had created in the Festival Hall .Now for the world to hear thanks to the Wigmore Hall live streaming.

In Perugia backstage she said she wanted no pictures or films as a concert should remain as a beautiful thing in one’s memory.Could it be that this COVID epidemic has made her rethink her philosophy and feel that in these sublime performances there is a message that no politician’s words could even begin to evaluate ?Hope you were listening.That is truly such masterly playing that technique become irrelevant as she produces with the minimum of movement an enormous range of nuances and sounds.From the enormous climax of the Gmajor first movement played with the same vehemence that I remember from Serkin .To a barely audible piano that becomes even pianississimo.I thought Volodos was the only pianist alive who could find those sounds .But she who seeks finds as she has proven today.I did not want to say it but I went to Perugia to try to meet this most remarkable lady who stands as a Tureck or Fischer in this very barren landscape.
