Midori plays Dvořák

Last year, she celebrated her fortieth anniversary on stage: Midori. During her first professional concert with the New York Philharmonic, the Japanese violinist was eleven years old. On one of her very first recordings, with this same orchestra, Midori plays Dvořák's Violin Concerto, a masterpiece that you, as a musician, can return to again and again. Praised for her conscientious interpretations and sensitive playing, Midori performs Dvořák in Amsterdam tonight, accompanied by the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and Elim Chan.

Brahms' Symphony No. 1

The young Brahms was launched as a more than promising composer by his older colleague and admirer Robert Schumann. Expectations were, therefore, so high that Brahms found it difficult to get anything down on paper, especially in the symphonic field he was insecure. He felt like he was standing in Beethoven's shadow. It took Brahms more than fifteen years to write his First Symphony, which he completed at forty-three.
