You Choose Mitsuko Uchida's Birthday Music
Wednesday, December 18, 2013
This coming Friday, pianist Mitsuko Uchida turns 65. Today's Showdown let you choose between three of her interpretations of Mozart’s works in every major keyboard genre: concerto, chamber music and solo sonata.
We asked you to choose which of these three pieces you wanted to hear Uchida perform. Nearly half of you voted to hear Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 17 in G performed by Uchida with the English Chamber orchestra under the direction of Jeffrey Tate. We played it at noon.
