The following year saw the restoration (both renovated and relocated) of the Severance Hall organ, which had not been used since the 1970s. Named after one of the orchestra's most loyal benefactors, John L Severance, the recurrent motif within the Georgian elegance of the Hall is that of the loutus blossom, said to be a particular favourite of Mrs Severance. The disparate interior designs - Art Deco, French Nouveau, Classicism, Egyptian Revival and Modernism - have been retained in the acclaimed restoration.
Extractions: Internationally acclaimed pianist Mitsuko Uchida joins forces with last year's award-winners from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust for young musicians, in an intriguing programme that contrasts the ebullience of Schumann's ever-popular Piano Quintet with the haunting melancholy of Mozart's A minor Rondo for piano.

Extractions: This week's concerts of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra bring the return of Principal Guest Conductor Pierre Boulez for another of his eclectic programs. True to form, he'll give us music of the century just past: a recent work by his young protege, Marc-Andre Dalbavie; the Piano Concerto in G major by Maurice Ravel, featuring pianist Mitsuko Uchida; and a ballet of Bartok, "The Miraculous Mandarin." While the Bartok is the largest piece, it's the Ravel Concerto which brings us the soloist, Mitsuko Uchida. Born in Japan and raised in Austria, she has become known for several specialties, especially Mozart. She played and recorded all the sonatas and concertos by Wolfgang some years ago, and that put her on the map. In a chat with me, Uchida told me a bit about herself. "I have passion for various composers," she said. "I have a passion for music. Having played Mozart for so long, I probably developed a sixth sense, an instinct, a notice of detail that I wouldn't have done unless I'd spent so much time on one person. I wish I could do so in the future on some other composers. It just turned out this way." I asked if there was a secret to playing Mozart. "There is no secret at all," she responded. "If there was, I wish I knew, or that someone would be able to tell me." So with all that in the past, does she want to abandon Amadeus? "No, but I feel strongly that I must do somebody else's music as well. 10 years on Beethoven would be fantastic." She certainly got her wish, playing the sonatas and recording all the concertos. Might that be a good balance - Mozart and Beethoven? "For the career, no, but personally, yes. I never know what is good or bad for the career, so I don't think about it. Ultimately, you need to balance out. To get too involved with one person is fine, but not forever."

Extractions: In the Mozart Piano Sonatas, too, Uchida is at her best. The woman knows how to pack a punch without becoming gratuitously forceful... (none of the wham-bamm Martha Argerich style - which, true enough, would be inappropriate in Mozart). She is soft without being timid. She can linger without muddling.

Extractions: by Jay Nordlinger O Impoverished as we are in pianists, there are some interesting and creditable ones on the scene. At Carnegie Hall recently, three of them appeared within two weeks: Mitsuko Uchida, a Japanese pianist, long resident in Europe, who is known particularly for her Mozart; Emanuel Ax, an American, born in Poland, who is admired for his Chopin and chamber playing; and Evgeny Kissin, a former child prodigy, now twenty-nine, from Russia, who is the object of rapture and delirium everywhere. Mitsuko Uchida, decidedly, is not of this tradition; she is a clean, careful, and modest pianist. Uchida offered an unusual program in New York, or rather, she presented it in an unusual order: a Chopin sonata, Webern, Mozart, and, to conclude, a late Schubert sonata. Her Chopin was the B Uchida, however, has a severely limited technique, meaning that she can barely handle much of the mainstream repertory. The Chopin sonata was all but beyond her. She is exceptionally tight in the arms, which restricts her movement and deprives her of fluidity. She appears to sit too close to the keyboard, and her shoulders are hunched. Her entire piano-playing apparatus seems cramped. To be sure, she usually manages to get through difficult passages, but not without awkwardness and strain. H er main problem in the first movement of the Chopin lay in the octaves: she could not coax a singing line out of them. It is easier, of course, to produce such a line with single notes, but Chopin demands that it be done with octaves as well. Uchida did not play those octaves
