About the Artist
Midori is a visionary artist, activist and educator whose unique career has transcended traditional boundaries through her relentless drive to explore and build connections between music and the human experience. Never at rest, Midori brings the same dynamic innovation and expressive insight that has made her a prominent concert violinist to her other roles as a noted global cultural ambassador and a dedicated music educator.
A leading concert violinist for over 35 years, Midori regularly transfixes audiences around the world, bringing together graceful precision and intimate expression that allows the listening public to not just hear music but to be personally moved by it. She has performed with, among many others, the London, Chicago, Boston, and San Francisco symphony orchestras, the Berlin, Vienna, New York, Los Angeles, St Petersburg and Czech philharmonics, the Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. She has collaborated with such outstanding musicians as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Emanuel Ax, Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Christoph Eschenbach, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvi, Antonello Manacorda, Constantinos Carydis, Omer Meir Wellber, Yo-Yo Ma, Susanna Mälkki, and Menahem Pressler.
Midori’s recent and upcoming global engagements highlight her versatility through performances of orchestral and chamber works by Bernstein, Bach, Respighi, Beethoven, Schumann, Fauré, Debussy, Enescu, Prokofiev and Brahms. Her tour schedule has included Europe with the Munich Chamber Orchestra, Japan with the Estonian Festival Orchestra and Paavo Järvi and it takes her in the 2019-2020 season to Asia with Festival Strings Lucerne. She also undertakes a worldwide recital tour with pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
