Masters meet when clarinetist-composer Jörg Widmann and pianist Mitsuko Uchida perform music of Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Berg, and Widmann. The Times (London) has praised Widmann for his “masterfully fluid tone control over every register, from the highest cloud-covered peak to the lowest velvet burblings.” Uchida, of course, is “among the most respected artists of our time” (The New York Times).
