Britten Violin Concerto / Marin Symphony

San Francisco Chronicle, January 28, 2017

The sheer musical impact of [Midori’s] presence was evident in the performance of Britten’s Violin Concerto that she gave with Music Director Alasdair Neale and the [Marin Symphony].

This early masterpiece, written when the composer was in his mid-20s, has for too long been a relatively overlooked jewel. Fortunately, the piece has begun to regain some of its appeal to performers, and Midori’s rendition — vivacious, expressive and full of judiciously chosen interpretive points — was a good reminder why.
