The 2003-2004 season finds the violinist Midori undertaking a typically dazzling itinerary of international concertizing, both in recital and as soloist with some of the world’s greatest symphonic ensembles, augmented by innovative educational outreach programs, in both Asia and North America. To this demanding schedule Midori will add the publication of her first book, and, after years of planning, the realization of two ambitious new philanthropic initiatives, “Partners in Performance” and the “University Residencies Program.” In the summer of 2003, Midori will perform as concerto soloist at a series of prestigious American summer festivals – Tanglewood, Aspen, Ravinia, and Mostly Mozart among them – after a European tour with a piano quartet to include Nobuko Imai on viola, Sadao Harada on cello, and Robert McDonald on piano. The 2003-2004 season will include appearances with the Milwaukee Symphony, the National Symphony, the Pacific Symphony, the Toronto Symphony, and the Cincinnati Symphony. Midori will do a European tour with the Philharmonia Orchestra under the direction of Jiri Belohlávek in January 2004, and will do four major recital tours throughout the season. The first recital tour will bring Midori to Germany and Switzerland in November 2003; the second to American cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Chapel Hill, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., in February 2004; the third to Italy in March 2004; and the fourth to England and Ireland in April 2004.

Violinist Midori to perform April 30
One of the most celebrated figures in the music world, Midori, returns to Cornell April 30 to perform a program of Mozart, Schubert, Prokofiev and Saint-Saens. The 25-year-old Japanese violinist, now in her second decade of an extraordinary international career, will perform with her recital partner and mentor, pianist Robert McDonald. Tickets for the 8:15 p.m. performance in Bailey Hall are available at the Lincoln Hall Ticket Office Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 255-5144. While her talent and poise were praised following her debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 11, they were never more in evidence than at Tanglewood in 1986, when she was forced to change violins twice during a performance of Leonard Bernstein's "Serenade" because strings broke on both her violin and the replacement violin from the concertmaster. Her performing schedule, balanced between recitals and appearances with the most prestigious symphonic ensembles, annually takes her to the great stages of Europe, North America and the Far East. She last played the Bailey Hall Concert Series in 1992. In the past several years, McDonald has distinguished himself as the recipient of a number of prizes, including the Gold Medal at the Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolonzo, Italy. He has participated at the Marlboro and Caramoor festivals, appeared with the San Francisco and Baltimore symphonies, and has been a frequent recital partner to Isaac Stern and Elmar Olivera.

Beethoven, Mozart, Elgar ; Midori (violin) London Symphony Orchestra, Zubin Mehta, Barbican Centre, 27 th April, 2003 (AR)
An accomplished performance of Beethoven’s Leonore No. 3 Overture opened Zubin Mehta’s LSO concert. Securing polished playing from the London Symphony Orchestra, notably some quite outstanding woodwind playing, the performance was given added edge with the incisive interplay between violins and ‘cellos and the off stage trumpet call. However, what was lacking was a sense of urgency and tension in the final passages, with the horns too toned down and the final timpani roll lacking proper weight and attack. Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.3 in G Major K 218 was given sensitive and refined support from Mehta and a reduced LSO – but what let the performance down was the florid playing of Midori. Her playing of the Allegro was brittle, harsh and heavy making the music sound too often as if it had come from the 19

perform in fund-raiser
The PNC Foundation and Jon D. Zschiegner are sponsoring a special fund-raising concert by violinist Midori at Algonquin Arts on Nov. 9 at 3 p.m. Midori chose to perform at Algonquin Arts in this inaugural season of her "Partners in Performance" project. In 2001, Midori was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize, which came with a cash award of $50,000. Midori is devoting these funds to Partners in Performance. Each year she will perform with the par­ticular goal of financial benefit for a pre­senting organization in a United States community outside the major concert tour circuit. One of her choices for this season is Algonquin Arts in Manasquan. This performance will be followed by a post-concert reception and is billed as a fund-raiser to support classical music at Algonquin Arts. In the spirit of Midori’s intent to promote classical music, 28 string students from area schools will be invited as guests and will receive Midori’s exclusive attention in an after-concert question and answer session.

Midori As the 2004-05 season unfolds, violinist Midori will add to her 90-concert performing schedule the duties of her new position at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California, which appointed Midori to its prestigious Heifetz Chair in Music, effective fall 2004. Starting in September, Midori's work at USC will include a series of master classes, private coaching in violin performance, and chamber music. She will also act as mentor to music majors drawn not only from the ranks of classical musicians but from jazz studies majors as well, treating a whole range of topics relating to the realities of the life of a professional musician, a subject often untouched by conservatories and music schools. She will also pursue her concert career as usual, making tours of the United States, Europe and Asia, as both recitalist and as soloist with orchestra. The 2002-03 season was the 20th of Midori's performing career. Throughout the season Midori made a point of performing with many of the international orchestras and in the key concert halls that played an important role in the development of her career, including an appearance at Avery Fisher Hall in New York with the New York Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta, with whom she made her professional debut at the age of 11. Midori is recognized for her devotion to developing innovative educational and community-based outreach programs in conjunction with presenters, universities and other artists. In the 2004-05 season, Midori will devote 30 percent of her time to the many philanthropic and educational outreach projects she has developed over the years, both in the United States and Japan.

Midori: White Lightning
Article # : Section : THE ARTS Issue Date : 2,883 Words Author : Susan Fegley Osmond
She walks onstage, a diminutive figure before the orchestra, as solitary, vulnerable, and fragile as a tender shoot in winter snows. The orchestra begins to play, and the girlish willow-wand tucks a priceless violin beneath her chin and raises her bow. A cue; then she unleashes from her violin a tone of such immensity, of such intense focus, of such ferocity that it takes the breath away. She writhes and dips and arches in such contortions that one would think it impossible for her to play at all. But her bow has been transformed into a samurai sword, whirling in a white heat of concentration, penetrating to the innermost core of the music. The dainty sprout has become a mighty fire, and phrases surge from her with such force and energy that one is reminded of the incandescent utterances of Zen calligraphy: With a bow for a brush and sound for ink, she emblazons her poem across time itselffrom beginning to end one breath of inspiration.
This is Midori, a prodigy who at the age of fourteen was already legendary for her fearlessness and unwavering concentration as well as unbelievable technical command, and she is now on the cusp of adulthood. In two concerts this summer she revealed herself to be at times desperately, almost recklessly searching for her true musical identity, at other times drawing cautiously back from the challenge. But it is a struggle of genius that one only feel privileged to behold.

Will Play Chandler Music Hall
New York, New York … Berlin, Germany … London England … Paris, France … Chicago, Illinois .. RANDOLPH, VERMONT. The violin prodigy Midori has added Chandler Music Hall in Randolph to the distinguished list of venues she will play this year, Chandler officials delightedly announced this week. The concert will be Friday evening, Nov. 7. Incredibly, Midori will not be charging a fee. She will come to Randolph as part of her own program to stimulate classical music and assist arts organizations—and she wants ticket receipts from the concert to go toward the programs of the Chandler Center for the Arts. Midori is an international star of the first magnitude who, though only 31, has been playing before the public for 20 years. She made her historic debut at the age of 11 when she was introduced as a surprise guest artist by conductor Zubin Mehta at a 1982 New Year's concert of the New York Philharmonic.

KNOXVILLE- The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's 2002-2003 Masterworks season opens on September 13 at the Civic Auditorium at 8:30 p.m., as superstar violinist Midori returns to the KSO stage 15 years after she captivated sold-out audiences at her 1987 Knoxville debut, this time as the star of the season-opening gala. The program includes "Variations on America" by Ives/Schuman, the Sibelius Violin Concerto, and "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Mussorgsky/Ravel. "The biggest impression we ever had with a guest artist in this community was when Midori first played here," said Maestro Kirk Trevor. "Ever since, we've been trying to get her back. She is one of the most sought-after artists of our time, and we are thrilled to have her return to Knoxville during my last season." Trevor continued, "I first met Midori in the summer of my very first season with the KSO while in Dallas. Back then, Midori was already a veteran star of thirteen, so I was extremely nervous. What I remembered most about that day was standing backstage with a young thirteen-year-old, then a few moments later, standing on the podium with someone that seemed to have matured twenty years or more in the few seconds it took to put the violin under her chin."

56. Report
Bell, Emily L. “midori’s talent as violinist emerged at young age.” http// PG Publishing, 2003.
Midori Most eleven year old girls are in fifth grade. They’re usually concerned with their friends and a newfound interest in boys. Most eleven year old girls are not thinking about a career. Midori Goto, however, was not your average eleven year old girl. At the tender age of eleven, she debuted as the guest violin soloist during a New York Philharmonic concert. Clearly, Midori was what is often referred to as a “child prodigy.” The problem is that many people still perceive her as such. Yet, Midori has matured both physically and musically. Unlike many child stars that fade away before they reach puberty, Midori successfully developed in the public eye and continues to help advance the field of music. Midori was born on October 25, 1971, in Osaka, Japan. Like most child prodigies, she was introduced to her future field of expertise at a very young age. For Midori, this field was the violin. Her mother, Setsu Goto, was a professional violinist, but Setsu never pressured her daughter to play. Midori, in fact, enjoyed listening to her mother play the violin and had a desire to play, herself. Therefore, when Midori was only four years old, her grandmother gave her a miniature violin on which she could practice. Midori practiced every day. Her mother gave her lessons and would listen to Midori play while she cooked in the kitchen or did other household chores. In this way, Midori memorized difficult pieces by famous composers such as Bach and Paganini.

Violinist prodigy to perform
classical music at McCain
he first came to the attention of the world as a child prodigy. A world-class violinist, Midori has been performing concerts for the past 15 years and she's only 25. Midori will perform at 8 p.m. Friday in McCain Auditorium. Midori first began playing when she was 4 years old. Her mother taught violin lessons and was her inspiration. The young Japanese girl began performing concerts when she was 10. Midori made her debut in New York with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra when she was 11 years old. Richard Martin, director of McCain, said an important reason Midori was brought to McCain was because she, unlike many other child prodigies, continues to shine in her field of talent. "She has not lost that sparkle, that magic she had as a youngster," Martin said. Midori will play a variety of classical pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. Midori's program will feature music by Cesar Franck, and violin composers George Enescu and Fritz Kreisler. In a tribute to Schubert, Midori will play "Sonata in A Major." She has appeared on "The Tonight Show," recorded albums and performed at the 1992 Winter Olympic Games. She is also the founder of the Midori Foundation, an organization established in 1992 to bring the performing arts into the everyday life of children.
