Renowned violinist, educator and cultural leader Midori has been inspiring audiences with her graceful artistry for more than 30 years.

A passionate advocate of the new, Midori brings to Venus Unwrapped her unique sequence of works by living female composers, including the Azerbaijani Ali-Zadeh’s evocative Sabil Hayagi and the exquisite rhapsody that is Vivian Fung’s Birdsong.

At the heart of the programme lies Sofia Gubaidulina’s poetic masterpiece Dancer on a Tightrope, in which the violinist performs a spectacular high-wire act above the otherworldly sounds and incantations of the prepared piano. A tour de force not to be missed!

Watch a short video introduction to Midori’s programme.
