The Strad’s October issue features Japanese-American violinist Midori, who speaks about performing contemporary music, recording Beethoven and dedicating herself to social causes. We also talk to Ensemble Diderot about introducing listeners to lesser-known 17th and 18th-century composers, and to Italian luthiers about adjusting to working in the time of Covid-19. Plus, we examine the rise of the viola in Georgian Britain, and share the Life Lessons of violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja.
