or her latest Decca album, Dame Mitsuko Uchida places Schumann's turbulent Piano Sonata No. 2 in G minor Op. 22 in company with his romantic Waldszenen ("Forest Scenes") Op. 82, begun in the revolutionary year of 1848, and the Gesänge der Frühe ("Songs of Dawn") Op. 133, transcendent creations written shortly before his confinement in a mental asylum. Dame Mitsuko's empathic understanding of the contrasting character and moods of each work and ability to portray them in sound underline her status among the greatest pianists of our time.
