Cal Performances presents pianist Mitsuko Uchida — a revered interpreter of Schubert — in a virtual recital, streamed online in a digital watch party accompanied by a participatory live chat on Thursday, March 18 at 7pm (PDT). In this recital, recorded for Cal Performances at Home at London’s Wigmore Hall, she performs a program dedicated to the composer’s stirring piano music, featuring two Impromptus and the transcendent Sonata in G major.

Following its debut, Uchida’s performance will be available for viewing on demand through June 16, 2021. Her recital is one of 12 newly produced, full-length performances in the Spring 2021 Cal Performances at Home performing arts streaming series, a continuation of the ambitious series launched in fall 2020. Filmed on stages all over the world — in renowned venues and recording studios in the locations where the artists are sheltering in place  — all artists in the spring series were originally booked to perform in person at UC Berkeley as part of Cal Performances’ 2020–21 live season, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Spring performances will debut on select Thursday evenings through June 10, 2021 as digital watch parties accompanied by participatory live chats. Every performance (except where noted) will be viewable on demand for three months following its debut. A complete list of all Cal Performances at Home performances currently available can be found at Cal Performances.
