An artist of "great imagination and depth" (The Philadelphia Inquirer), Midori plays the very first NSO performances of Schumann's Violin Concerto, which essentially remained a secret for more than 80 years after it was composed. Technically daunting and intensely lyrical, Schumann's concerto is now considered one of his most romantic, heroic, and moving works. The program also includes Mendelssohn's "Reformation" Symphony and Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony.

Performance Timing: Part One - 64 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 40 min.
