Midori (January 2022)
For her lifetime achievement, Midori was awarded the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors in May 2021.
In March 2022, Midori will tour Europe with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the orchestra with which she performed the world premiere of Detlev Glanert’s Violin Concerto No. 2 “To the Immortal Beloved” dedicated to her in Edinburgh in November 2021.
Together with pianist Özgür Aydin, Midori will perform in March at Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles, Capistrano Hall in Sacramento and Chamber Music San Francisco with works of Bach, Mozart, Schumann, Brahms, and Nikos Skalkottas.
With the Festival Strings Lucerne, she will play four concerts in Germany in April, with Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D major and Romances Nos. 1 and 2 on the program. A joint recording of these works was released by Warner Classics in 2020.
Spoiler Alert: Midori and Jean-Yves Thibaudet are currently in the recording studio. Stay tuned!
