Part of the Kennedy Center Festival Japan! Culture + Hyperculture
with Marc-Andre Hamelin, piano


Midori "makes artful use of her gifts, channeling the spirit of composers."
--Los Angeles Times

The Miró Quartet performs with "irresistible warmth and intensity."
--The New York Times

Since her prodigious debut at age 11, Midori has staked her claim as one of the world's leading violinists. She has appeared with all of today's top orchestras, sharing her gift with international audiences. In a rare, intimate performance in the Kennedy Center Family Theater, Midori is joined by the up-and-coming Miró Quartet, whose youthful intensity has made them one of America's brightest chamber groups. As part of the Kennedy Center's celebration of Japan, the program will include two works by Toru Takemitsu, one of Japan's most distinguished composers of the 20th century. The concert begins with Ravel's blues-influenced Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 2 and concludes with Debussy's touching String Quartet.
