Midori & Jean-Yves Thibaudet

Oct 23, 2022


Master violinist and educator Midori has been a force in classical music for almost 40 years. This season she collaborates with Jean-Yves Thibaudet, celebrated for his “trademark elegance” (The New York Times), on three Beethoven sonatas. Anchoring the recital is the exhilarating Kreutzer, which — as interpreted by Midori — promises “a stunning performance of one of Beethoven’s most famous works” (South Florida Classical Review).
