"Concerto Choice. There is a pearly sheen to her tone and an elegance to her articulation that evokes the operatic character of Mozart's concertos. Dialogue, flirtations and diverting challenges abound ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

“What a delight to find lightness and elegance twinkling away in Mitsuko Uchida’s Mozart ... for her sparkling fingerwork and the clear recording I give much thanks.”
- The Times

"... readings that have all the intelligence and refinement that audiences have come to expect of this great Mozartian. There is a real sense of a stimulating conversation between soloist and orchestra ... gracefully played."
- The Independent

"One of the greatest pianists of our time returns to two marvellous Mozart concertos ... Uchida brings grace and flair to her performance. The Cleveland Orchestra too, with which Uchida has a truly tangible rapport, provide superbly subtle support."
- Classic FM

Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida earned an international reputation and a Grammy Award playing the music of Mozart. This 2014 album is another installment in her acclaimed ongoing Mozart series with the Cleveland Orchestra.

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!
