Midori and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra at the Orpheum Theatre
One of the world’s top violinists, tackling one of the world’s most formidable violin concertos? We’re in. Acclaimed star Midori joins the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on Saturday and Monday (January 12 and 14) at the Orpheum to put her strings to Johannes Brahms’s Violin Concerto in D Major, a dramatic, bow-breaking barrage of fractured chords and lightning-speed scale passages. Don’t think you’ve heard it? Watch the movie There Will Be Blood again and listen to the music during the credits.
