The Japanese-American violinist’s latest CD is released in October on Warner Classics

Midori Beethoven cover

In the October issue,  Midori talks about her latest recording of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto and Romances, with Festival Strings Lucerne led by concertmaster Daniel Dodds. ’In the last several years, the opportunities have grown for me to work without a conductor,’ she says. ’Bach, Mozart – this type of repertoire I almost always prefer without a conductor. And, of course, I love Beethoven’s chamber music: I’ve played some of it so many times. In a way the energy of his chamber music is like a concerto, but without a conductor. Performing the Concerto without a conductor is a wonderful feeling – that sense of togetherness and the way that everyone concentrates. To feel this on stage is very special.’

The recording is released this month on Warner Classics and we have ten copies to give away. For your chance to win one, click here to enter your details.
