Midori

July 13, 2010

Midori in the PT Studios

The great American violinist Midori joins host Fred Child for nearly a full hour of music and conversation. She and pianist Robert McDonald play the opening movement from the Violin Sonata No. 1 by Brahms, the complete Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano by Paul Hindemith, and a bon-bon by Fritz Kreisler, Syncopation. Midori opens the hour with a solo performance of the opening Adagio from the Violin Sonata in g-minor by Bach (BWV 1001). Midori will talk about the singular power of music by Bach, and about the many ways in which she is reaching out to young musicians, and young listeners.
