Mitsuko Uchida is surely one of the more radiantly gifted pianists of our time. She never ceases to amaze with her performances with orchestras around the world, playing both the Romantic and the Classical and now contemporary concerti with utter ease, involvement and communication through the composer with the orchestra and the audience. But to hear her in solo recital is a gift.

And speaking of gifts, this CD of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas 109, 110 and 111 (the last sonatas) is one of the more treasured gifts she has produced. Even for those familiar with her brilliant technique and her ability to drive to the soul of a work, her performances in these daunting sonatas are astonishing fine. She can produce the largest of rich sounds and the most quiet moments, the agility of the rapid runs with the contemplative moments of the slow movements with equal grace. This CD is most assuredly one of the finest of the year. It leaves you breathless. Grady Harp, December 06
