Midori plays the Mendelssohn Concerto

ZEMLINSKY, Die Seejungfrau (The Mermaid)
MENDELSSOHN, Violin Concerto
BRAHMS, Variations on a Theme by Haydn

When still only a child, the talent of Midori was noted by conductors around the world, including Charles Dutoit, who invited her to Montreal to perform on several occasions. Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times wrote about her: “I know of no violinist with a more sensitive or respectful sense of vibrato.” She returns to us at last, to perform the famous and virtuoso Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.

Recognized for his interpretations of the music of Zemlinsky, James Conlon conducts one of the composer’s most performed works, the large-scale symphonic poem Die Seejungfrau (The Little Mermaid), which takes up the narrative thread of the Andersen story. Brahms’s Variations on a Theme by Haydn completes the program.

Preconcert talk with James Conlon hosted by Katerine Verebely at 7 p.m.

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 – 8 p.m. performed as part of the BBA Wedenesday Grand Concerts 1 series
Thursday, May 1, 2014 – 8 p.m. performed as part of the Air Canada Thursday Grand Concerts 1 series
