"Alert yet dreamy, freely bending the tempo throughout, Ms. Uchida was most fascinating in the way she shifted her approach between the concertos. In the earlier work, her sound was pebbly: smooth yet defined. In the latter, her tone was richer, by the end almost organ-like in its amplitude and grandeur. With the orchestra, her relationship was intimate, playful, delightful."
- The New York Times

With this release recorded live at Severance Hall in February 2016, Mitsuko Uchida concludes her ongoing exploration of Mozart’s piano concertos, conducting the Cleveland Orchestra from the piano. The first volume in the series earned a Grammy Award in 2011 and all the following installments have received lavish critical praise.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
