With Sarah Walker. In this week of the Royal Wedding, music with Pomp and Circumstance, recordings by Mitsuko Uchida, plus the next in our Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle. 10.00 Handel My Heart is Inditing, HWV 261 The Sixteen Harry Christophers (conductor) Coro 16066 10.12 Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle Sonata in F minor, WoO 47 No.2 Ronald Brautigam (fortepiano) BIS-SACD-1672 10.23 Wagner Forest Murmurs from Siegfried Berlin Philharmonic Klaus Tennstedt (conductor) EMI 568616-2 10.30 Elgar Pomp and Circumstance Military Marches, Op.39 London Philharmonic Orchestra Adrian Boult (conductor) EMI 764015-2 10.57 Bruckner Symphony no.7 in E major (original version): Adagio. Sehr feierlich und sehr langsam Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra Gunter Wand (conductor) RCA 09026 63937 2 11.19 Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto from Mitsuko Uchida. An interpreter of great depth and versatility, Uchida "embraces the humanism and universalism of Beethoven, his emotional gravity and Olympian intellect, and plays at the peak of her considerable powers." (Financial Times). Indeed it was Uchida's 2008 performance of this work at the Barbican Hall that prompted the review: "Uchida's intelligent and minutely attentive style made for a predictably exemplary solo performance" (The Guardian). Beethoven Piano Concerto no.4 in G, Op.58 Mitsuko Uchida (piano) Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra Kurt Sanderling (conductor) Philips 475 6757.
