About the Music

Schubert  Piano Sonata in C major, D.840

Mozart  Eine kleine Nachtmusik [A Small Serenade], K.525

Pianist Mitsuko Uchida is showcased in a solo performance filmed especially for Cleveland Orchestra audiences on January 4, 2021 at London’s Wigmore Hall, playing one of Schubert’s most mesmerizing sonatas.

Uchida’s brilliant solo playing is paired with one of Mozart’s most popular and well-known works, his Eine kleine Nachtmusik. “Nachtmusik” literally means “night music,” but more simply suggests music for serenading evening guests. Here Mozart’s richness for invention and uplifting joy carries you forward through four exquisite movements for strings.

In addition to the concert performances, each episode of In Focus includes behind-the-scenes interviews and features about the music and musicmaking.
