Mitsuko Uchida (piano)
Venue: John Innes Conference Centre
Mozart. Sonata in F, K533 & 494
Beethoven. 33 Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli, Op.120
A welcome return visit to Norwich by the internationally renowned Mitsuko Uchida. Beethoven’s ‘Diabelli’ Variations form the crown of his output for solo piano – a summing up of a lifetime’s experience in an astonishingly witty and endlessly inventive series of variations that spin a seemingly trivial theme into a large-scale work lasting little short of an hour.
