Both my videos this week feature Mitsuko Uchida and the Schumann concerto. In the other video she talks about the piece and in this one she is seen playing an excerpt from it with Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic. The concert was given in 2009. In everything she plays Uchida exhibits an uncommon intelligence and beauty of sound. But perhaps her greatest strength is her joy in making music. Simon Rattle has the same qualities as a conductor and together they make the Schumann concerto something fresh and life-affirming.
