Midori All-Ukrainian tour

Date and time

02 September 2019, Monday 19:00

Ukrainian tour with the participation of the violin legend Midori! Depth, shine, emotionality and unsurpassed technique! Beloved classics and works of contemporary Ukrainian composers. Only one performance in Lviv, Kyiv and Odesa. Do not miss it!

Midori is a phenomenal example of how the prodigy's star not only faded away over time, but also brightens each year brighter. She was born in Japan. She began to play the violin at age  three, she conquered the New York Philharmonic at 11, and for over 35 years she gets the most prestigious concert halls of the world standing.
Midori regularly transfixes audiences around the world, bringing together graceful precision and intimate expression that allows the listening public not just to hear music but to be personally moved by it.  She has performed with, among many others, the symphony orchestras of London, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and the Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Berlin, Vienna, New York, Los Angeles, St Petersburg and Czech philharmonics and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. She has collaborated with such outstanding musicians as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Christoph Eschenbach, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvi, Yo-Yo Ma, Susanna Mälkki, Menahem Pressler and Mstislav Rostropovich.
Midori is a visionary artist, activist and educator whose unique career has transcended traditional boundaries through her relentless drive to explore and build connections between music and the human experience. Never at rest, Midori brings the same dynamic innovation and expressive insight that has made her a prominent concert violinist to her other roles as a noted global cultural ambassador and dedicated music educator.

In September 2019, Midori will  have tour in Ukrainian with the Ukrainian violinist, her student Orest Smovzh. With the Ukrainian Festival Orchestra under the guidance of Ivan Ostapovych Midori and Orest Smovzh will play in the Lviv Organ Hall on September 2.
