“[Midori] Graceful, heartfelt, neatly ornamented and technically superb” Gramophone

“[Festival Strings Lucerne] One of the most brilliant chamber orchestras that currently exists in the world” El Mundo

Having debuted at age 11 as a prodigy under Zubin Mehta with the New York Philharmonic, going on to conquer Tanglewood with two broken E-strings on her violin in front of Leonard Bernstein at age 14, the multiple award-winning concert violinist Midori has since made an impressive career of over 30 years collaborating with world-class conductors and musicians. Not only has she established and sustained her position as one of the world’s greatest musicians, but she has also gained tremendous respect for her efforts in community engagement, nurturing new talents and promoting classical music to the underprivileged.

Boasting a distinguished history of over 60 years, Festival Strings Lucerne is lauded for its “golden sound” (The Washington Post), with its legendary antique instruments made by Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati and the musicians’ youthful and dynamic approach. To celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday, Midori joins hands with the Festival Strings Lucerne to perform all of the music giant’s major works for violin and orchestra.
