Notes & Reviews:

The definitive Mozart pianist of our time continues her Grammy Award- winning series of concerto recording with no.9 known as "Jeunehomme" and very popular no. 21

The Concertos nos. 23 and 24 release in the series was a huge critical and popular success, already selling nearly 30,000 copies and winning a Grammy award

These extraordinary performances are the result of Mitsuko Uchida's longstanding association with The Cleveland Orchestra. Unlike her first cycle of recordings for Philips, they feature Dame Mitsuko directing the orchestra herself, from the piano, delighting in a very special musical collaboration

The Independent
No pianist conveys the rapture of Mozart quite like Mitsuko Uchida does

Financial Times, October 2012
Uchida's third disc as soloist/director with the Cleveland Orchestra is every bit as satisfying as its predecessors.

The Observer, September 2012
Joyful, probing and vivacious in the early Jeunehomme in E flat major, K271 and in the grand C major, K467, both of which have famously tender, poetic slow movements. The ensemble between Uchida and the Cleveland is cleanly articulated but always full of wonder and curiosity.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
So I end up basically agreeing with Paul Althouse and Gil French, who have reviewed others in this Cleveland series. The performances are pretty good, but everything needs to be more expressive.
