Midori

August 24, 2011

Midori in the PT Studios

Violinist Midori joined host Fred Child in our PT studios recently for an hour of music and conversation. She talked about the singular power of music by Bach ("so spiritual, so cleansing, so difficult") and about the many ways in which she is reaching out to young musicians and young listeners. Plus, Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, from a concert by the New York Philharmonic.
