The young Mitsuko Uchida discovered the simultaneous joys of strolling through the Gassen (narrow streets) of Vienna and the richness of its musical history when her diplomat father was appointed to a post in the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Now resident in London, she freely admits to loving the Viennese style and enjoys revisiting the city to explore all the facets of its rich repertoire, which features in the programme for her new recital this season.
