About the Artist
Uto Ughi, Italian virtuoso born near Milan in 1944, made his debut as a soloist at the age of seven, when he presented a program which included the Chaconne from Bach's Partita in D minor and some of Paganini's Caprices. He studied under the direction of the famed composer and violinist, Georges Enesco, and in 1959 made his first concert appearances in all the major cities of Europe: Paris, London, Vienna, Berlin, Oslo, Amsterdam, Madrid, and Barcelona. Mr. Ughi has since performed throughout Europe, in North and South America, South Africa, the Soviet Union, and Japan, under such famous conductors as Sir John Barbirolli, Andre Cluytens, Kiril Kondrashin, Efrem Kurtz, Carlo Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Gennady Rozdestvensky, Sir Malcolm Sargent, and Wolfgang Sawallisch. He plays the "Van Houten-Kreutzer" Stradivarius, made in 1701, which, according to a reliable tradition, was once the property of Rudolf Kreutzer, the friend to whom Beethoven dedicated the Sonata in A major, Op. 47. Mr. Ughi performs this work on tonight's program, in his Ann Arbor debut.
