If you like your Mitsuko Uchida straight up, you could attend the distinguished pianist’s solo recital in Carnegie Hall Thursday night, with familiar works by Mozart and Schumann and the New York premiere of Sonatina facile by the much-talked-about German composer and clarinetist Jörg Widmann.

But why settle for Widmann by proxy, when you can see the man himself and his clarinet duetting with Uchida Sunday afternoon in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall?  The artists pair up for top-drawer works by Brahms, Berg, and Schumann, Widmann performs his own Fantasie for Solo Clarinet, and Uchida solos in a Schubert impromptu and yes, the New York deuxième of Sonatina facile. 

Mitsuko Uchida performs piano works of Mozart, Schumann and Widmann8 p.m. Thursday at Carnegie Hall. carnegiehall.org; 212-247-7800.

Mitsuko Uchida, piano, and Jörg Widmann, clarinet, perform works of Brahms, Berg, Widmann, Schubert and Schumann 3 p.m. Sunday in Zankel Hall, Carnegie Hall. carnegiehall.org; 212-247-7800.
