Notes & Reviews:

This new EMI Classics release has Japanese pianist Ayako Uehara performing masterpieces of 19th century Russian music - Tchaikovsky's 'Piano Concerto No. 1' and Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition'. Both works on the new CD are close to her heart, her passion for Russian music dating back to her early studies in Japan with a visiting teacher from the Moscow Conservatory. In order to produce the necessary depth and volume of sound, Uehara has to place her body-weight effectively on the keyboard, at times almost lifting herself off the piano stool. This adds to the special intensity that characterizes her performances.

Gramophone
Here is a pianist who, unlike most young competition winners, is already a world-class artist.
