Mitsuko Uchida

Mitsuko Uchida (Piano)

Born: 20th December 1948, Atami, Shizuoka, Japan

Nationality: Japanese

When Mitsuko Uchida talks about her art, one term that comes up again and again is 'the right balance'. Her playing has an extraordinary sense of equilibrium: between intellectual rigour and naturalness of expression; between acute awareness of tradition and an eternal quest for discovery; between personal commitment and objective understanding; between beauty and truth. All this would be remarkable in any musician, but is particularly striking when one considers the diverse cultural influences on Uchida's life and career. Japanese by birth, trained in Vienna, she has lived in London for more than two decades and is happy to call herself an Englishwoman.
