“One cannot fail to be mesmerized by Midori’s flawless technique, by the orchestra of colors she coaxes from just four strings, by the eloquence and rhetoric of her phrasing.” BBC Music Magazine

Combining graceful precision with intimate expression, visionary violinist Midori is sure to transfix audiences in this performance with Europe’s most distinguished string orchestra. In 2020, Midori and Switzerland’s Festival Strings Lucerne commemorated Beethoven’s 250th birthday by recording the composer’s Violin Concerto and his two Romances. The recipient of a prestigious Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime artistic achievement, the Grammy Award-winning artist, activist and educator recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of her professional debut with the New York Philharmonic.
