Midori cancels in US

The somewhat fragile violinist, who recently performed in Germany, has cancelled one (or perhaps both) dates of a mini-US tour. She was due to perform the Korngold concerto in Lincoln, Nebraska and Erie, Pennsylvania. She has been replaced in Erie by Michael Ludwig. We are not sure of the status of the Lincoln engagement.

UPDATE: We understand she did play Lincoln.

Through this year Midori, 43, has cancelled residencies in Bangor, Rochester and a London festival, along with an extensive US tour. An updated list of her engagements and cancellations can be read here.

We wish her a full recovery.

    Didn’t she have a baby earlier this year? I admire someone who combines being a top class musician and mother of a young child. Hope she gets well soon.


    Midori is so inspiring – she is even a United Nations Messenger of Peace!
