Palm Beach Symphony
Presents
Masterwork Series: Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony

Midori, Violin Headshot

Midori, violin

Apr 10, 2022 |Alexander W. Dreyfoos Concert Hall

Program to include:
Korngold: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35 (Palm Beach Symphony Premiere)
William Schuman: New England Triptych (Palm Beach Symphony Premiere)
Dvořák: Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88 (Palm Beach Symphony Premiere)

Recent Kennedy Center Honor Awardee for Lifetime Artistic Achievement Midori performs Korngold’s Violin Concerto in D Major in a season finale of three Palm Beach Symphony premieres. As a famous Jewish composer, Korngold found a safe haven in Hollywood during WWII and this lush symphonic work contains all of his Viennese romanticism as he vividly interweaves music from four of his film scores. The emotionally evocative program also features the melodious, cheerful and upbeat Symphony No. 8 by Dvořák and William Schuman’s New England Triptych with its spirited homage to the 18th century American composer William Billings and his countrymen and women who founded our nation.

As a leading concert violinist for over 35 years, Midori regularly transfixes audiences around the world, bringing together graceful precision and intimate expression. She has performed with, among others, the London, Chicago, and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras, the Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. She has collaborated with such outstanding musicians as Claudio Abbado, Emanuel Ax, Leonard Bernstein, Jonathan Biss, Constantinos Carydis, Christoph Eschenbach, Daniel Harding, Paavo Järvi, Mariss Jansons, Yo-Yo Ma, Susanna Mälkki, Joana Mallwitz, Antonello Manacorda, Zubin Mehta, Donald Runnicles, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Omer Meir Wellber. The Washington Post reported, “Midori’s is still the singular sound familiar from her long affiliation with the virtuosic standards: big, focused, strongly projected, uncannily smooth and consistent bowing across a broadband spectrum of volume and color.”
