The Ojai Music Festival welcomes a universally admired artist as music director for its 78th iteration June 6-9.

Pianist Mitsuko Uchida last performed at the 2004 Festival and was co-music director in 1998. She will perform each festival evening in works by Schoenberg and Mozart. Known as a peerless interpreter of the works of Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Beethoven, as well for being a devotee of the piano music of Alban Berg, Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and György Kurtág, Uchida was Musical America’s 2022 Artist of the Year.

At this year’s festival, she will be joined by conductor Aliisa Neige Barrière, clarinetist Vicente Alberola, violinist José Maria Blumenschein, the Brentano String Quartet, cellist Jay Campbell, soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, percussionist Sae Hashimoto, violinist Alexi Kenney, accordionist Ljubinka Kulisic, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, harpist Julie Smith Phillips, bassist Rick Stotijn, and new media artist Xuan.
