Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss

Tuesday, 5 September 2023, 7.30pm

Part of the Wigmore Hall Festival at the Royal Irish Academy of Music to launch the Whyte Recital Hall, Ireland's new purpose built chamber music venue.

Mitsuko Uchida, one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the piano repertoire, welcomes fellow world-renowned pianist Jonathan Biss to celebrate music by Schubert written for piano duet, playing a repertoire that contains some surprisingly ambitious works, in a tour that takes in Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall and Dublin’s Whyte Recital Hall. The biggest piece here is the Divertissement in Hungarian style, dating from 1824; Life’s Storms and the Grand Rondo date from the composer’s final year (1828) while the march is one of a set of six written between 1818 and 1824.

Allegro in A Minor for Piano Four Hands, D. 947, "Lebensstürme"
Rondo in A Major for Piano Four Hands, D. 951
Grande Marche No. 5 in E-flat Minor for Piano Four Hands, D. 819
Divertissement à la hongroise for Piano Four Hands, D. 818
