The Baltimore Sun, October 2016

by TIM SMITH [On Midori’s performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and José-Luis Novo]

You could easily sense how deeply Midori has considered and reconsidered every note of this score but her interpretation never came across as studied. Phrasing had a spontaneous quality, propelled by a poetic pulse, even in the very spaciously paced first two movements. The violinist’s impeccable intonation and the burnished richness of her tone impressed throughout.
