Midori featured on GRAMMY-winning album

The 2014 GRAMMY Award winning album for “Best Classical Compendium” features USC Thornton Distinguished Professor and Jascha Heifetz Chair in Violin Midori. The album, Hindemith: Violinkonzert; Symphonic Metamorphosis; Konzertmusik, was conducted by Christoph Eschenbach and includes Midori as a featured soloist.

“I am delighted that Christoph Eschenbach and the NDR Symphony Orchestra invited me to play Hindemith’s Violin Concerto as part of their CD tribute to Paul Hindemith,” said Midori. “Hindemith is one of the musicians I respect and admire the most. I hope our recording brings more awareness and appreciation of this great artist.”
