Midori, violin and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano
MONDAY, APRIL 15, 2019
Venue Matthews Theatre
Since her debut at age 11 with the New York Philharmonic, Midori has established a record as a master musician and innovator. Her partner at the keyboard will be the prolific, Grammy-nominated, French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, making his McCarter debut. Thibaudet has recorded over 50 albums—two with Grammy nominations. He is Artist-in-Residence with the Boston Symphony Orchestra this season. What also sets him apart is his delight in music beyond the standard repertoire, from jazz to opera, and including film soundtracks. Midori will join him in sonatas by Schumann, Fauré, Debussy, and Enescu.
