About

Midori, violin
with Özgür Aydin, piano

"That these two musicians are regular collaborators was evident in each of their finely wrought but free-spirited interpretations."

--The New York Times

Violinist Midori has appeared frequently at the Kennedy Center since making her professional debut 30 years ago. She celebrates that milestone, performing with accompanist Özgür Aydin a program of Beethoven Sonatas, including the fiery "Kreutzer" Sonata No. 9, interspersed with works by Webern and Crumb. The New York Times calls her "a complete artist who knows what she wants. Her playing here had an intriguing mix of qualities. Rising scales and intricate passagework would unfold with almost mystical repose....Yet she could also be impetuous, rushing ahead during a fleet run or prolonging a melodic phrase. Her liberties seemed the result of deliberate decisions, not Romantic flights."
