Booking is now open for Mitsuko Uchida’s recital on Sunday 2nd April, 4pm at Fairlight Hall.

This intimate, special fundraising concert is a really exciting way to hear one of the world’s greatest pianists playing Beethoven’s final 3 sonatas.

This concert will be followed by a drinks reception.

We are delighted to be able to keep ticket prices the same as when Mistuko last joined us in 2021.

Tickets for this special fundraising concert are £100 for the concert and drinks reception, or £150 if you would like to stay for dinner, too. Tickets for the concert and the dinner are extremely limited, so we would encourage you to book straight away.

To avoid hefty credit card charges we will only be accepting bookings by email for this concert.

To book, please email our General Manager  Phil Gietzen with the number of tickets required and whether you will be booking for the dinner too.

Phil will then email you the bank details to do a BACs transfer and an order number for you to put as the reference. We won’t be issuing physical tickets, but my email confirmation will ensure that your name is on the list.

Email to reserve your tickets.

One of the most revered artists of our time, Mitsuko Uchida is known as a peerless interpreter of the works of Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Beethoven, as well for being a devotee of the piano music of Alban Berg, Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and György Kurtág.

She has enjoyed close relationships over many years with the world’s most renowned orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and – in the US – the Chicago Symphony and The Cleveland Orchestra, with whom she recently celebrated her 100th performance at Severance Hall. Conductors with whom she has worked closely have included Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle, Riccardo Muti, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Vladimir Jurowski, Andris Nelsons, Gustavo Dudamel, and Mariss Jansons.

Since 2016, Mitsuko Uchida has been an Artistic Partner of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, with whom she is currently engaged on a five-year touring project in Europe and North America. She also appears regularly in recital in Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, London, New York and Tokyo, and is a frequent guest at the Salzburg Mozartwoche and Salzburg Festival.

Mitsuko Uchida records exclusively for Decca, and her multi-award-winning discography includes the complete Mozart and Schubert piano sonatas. She is the recipient of two Grammy Awards – for Mozart Concertos with The Cleveland Orchestra, and for an album of lieder with Dorothea Röschmann – and her recording of the Schoenberg Piano Concerto with Pierre Boulez and the Cleveland Orchestra won the Gramophone Award for Best Concerto.

A founding member of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust and Director of Marlboro Music Festival, Mitsuko Uchida is a recipient of the Golden Mozart Medal from the Salzburg Mozarteum, and the Praemium Imperiale from the Japan Art Association. She has also been awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society, and holds Honorary Degrees from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. In 2009 she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Mitsuko Uchida is managed by Kathryn Enticott at Enticott Music Management in partnership with Alex Monsey at IMG Artists.
