Mitsuko Uchida & le Mahler Chamber Orchestra

06/03, 20:00, Philharmonie, www.philharmonie.lu

Since the death of Mahler Chamber Orchestra founder Claudio Abbado, Mitsuko Uchida has maintained a close relationship with the acutely sensitive ensemble. The accomplished musician and winner of the Frédéric Chopin competition in Warsaw has certainly not been afraid to make remarkable forays into 20th-century music, although her name continues to be associated with the scores of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in which the piano and the orchestra on stage go head to head, flirt with and challenge one another. Mitsuko Uchida, the composer’s imminent performer and, on this occasion, conductor, has chosen the ballet Idomeneo as an overture, followed by Concerto No. 18, which was once received with a congratulatory “Bravo, Mozart” by emperor Joseph II, and Concerto No. 21 in C, with an air of clarity that exudes serenity.
