Notes & Reviews:
Celebrated violinist Midori, the recently appointed UN Messenger of Peace, returns with her first new recording in five years. On this new CD, Midori lends her prodigious gifts to Bach's 'Unaccompanied Sonata No. 2 in A minor' and Bartok's 'Sonata No. 1 in C-sharp minor', the latter performed with long-time collaborator, pianist Robert McDonald. Midori's extraordinary technique and stunning musicality are on dazzling display. Bach and Bartok: 'Violin Sonatas' illustrates why she is hailed as "one of the most important violinists of our time." (The San Francisco Chronicle)
