Mark Padmore, Mitsuko Uchida

Schubert: Schwanengesang (CD)

With a lifetime’s experience, the tenor Mark Padmore, and the pianist Mitsuko Uchida present two of the ultimate works of the lieder repertoire. Mitsuko’s last album won the 2022 Piano Gramophone Award and the long-celebrated pianist is one of the world’s leading interpreters of Schubert, alongside Beethoven’s only song cycle, the ideal coupling. Mark Padmore CBE is world-renowned for his lieder.

“Of all the great piano soloists turned accompanists in this music, [Uchida] remains the most interesting. Padmore meanwhile made this a vocal journey of existential discovery alongside a textbook lesson in dynamics and the treatment of words.” – The Guardian

“Two Schubert masters... It’s difficult to avoid superlatives when writing about Mitsuko Uchida and Mark Padmore. Especially when it comes to Schubert.” – The New York Times
