But in the Broadcasting House foyer (where, my dears, you see everyone who is anyone), I bumped into Mitsuko Uchida, who was on her way to Radio 3 to appear on In Tune. Now there’s one truly great artist – a pianist you couldn’t fake if you tried. Her playing could never have been anybody else’s. I’ve often felt that for her, the piano is like a second voice box. It’s part of her, indivisible from her personality, indeed her soul, and that’s how it ought to be.

She’s playing Mozart piano concertos with the LSO and Colin Davis at the Barbican on Wednesday and Thursday. Further details here and here. UPDATE: BOTH CONCERTS are now sold out. Earlier this evening, there were seats available for Wednesday, but…

However I did listen to the IN TUNE broadcast and heard her in live chat with Sean Rafferty.  Listen to it here or to my podcast
