  • King's Place 90 York Way London, England, N1 9AG United Kingdom (map)


Renowned violinist, educator and cultural leader Midori has been inspiring audiences with her graceful artistry for more than 30 years.

A passionate advocate of the new, Midori brings to Venus Unwrapped her unique sequence of works by living female composers, including the Azerbaijani Ali-Zadeh’s evocative Sabil Hayagi and the exquisite rhapsody that is Vivian Fung’s Birdsong.

At the heart of the programme lies Sofia Gubaidulina’s poetic masterpiece Dancer on a Tightrope, in which the violinist performs a spectacular high-wire act above the otherworldly sounds and incantations of the prepared piano. A tour de force not to be missed!
