Violin superstar Midori and “master colorist and … great communicator” (Seattle Times) Jean-Yves Thibaudet team up for their first Washington Performing Arts appearances in more than a decade to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday year. Anchored by the exhilarating “Kreutzer,” which, in the Washington Post’s words, “[has drawn] more out of Midori than mere virtuosity,” the all-Beethoven recital promises to reveal how even mainstays of the canon can reveal fresh nuances and kindle powerful emotions in the hands of two masterful performers.
