Midori at Oregon Bach Festival
I wrote a review of the Oregon Bach Festival's all-Mendelssohn concert for the Eugene Register-Guard. Violin virtuoso Midori performed the violin concerto and Jeffrey Kahane conducted the Symphony No. 5. Both pieces were interpreted terrifically. But the orchestra's performance of the Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream was not up to par.
