Jörg Widmann’s chamber orchestra arrangement of his Choralquartett mesmerizes with daring textures and tonalities, framed by two Mozart piano concertos. It’s quite a magnificent frame because the pianist is Mitsuko Uchida, who plays and conducts from the keyboard. The Chicago Sun-Times has written of the legendary artist, “Uchida’s remarkable approach to the piano—with her ability to shift the weight and meaning of any line of music in the most brilliant and seamless ways—is a given.”
