Only a few pianists regularly cross the threshold of mere excellence to transporting brilliance… Mitsuko Uchida can be included in that exclusive handful."

About the Event

“Every day of my life that I am allowed to play Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and the music of our own time,” says piano legend Mitsuko Uchida, “is a gift from somewhere. If heaven existed, it’s heaven.” For us, to have this extraordinary musician back to perform Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas is, indeed, a musical heaven—an exquisite combination of monumental music performed by one of the most revered artists of our time. Of all of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, the final three are especially hallowed for the astonishing emotional ground that they cover, from utter anguish to complete exhilaration, communicated through breathtaking virtuosity. To hear Beethoven’s final thoughts on the piano sonata as a genre in Uchida’s venerated hands is a defining moment in PUC’s 129-year history.  

PLEASE NOTE: All attendees will be required to show photo ID and proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to the maximum extent, which now includes a booster shot for all eligible to receive it. Please read our COVID-19 policies in advance of attendance.
