MIDORI had been scheduled for Special Stage 2020 with Beethoven’s 250th and Isaac Stern’s 100th anniversary of their births in October, but the event was postponed due to international travel restrictions to Japan for herself and other performers from abroad. However, it will be held this year as the 40th anniversary of MIDORI’s debut. The programmes will feature Beethoven’s pieces including violin sonatas, piano trios, and concertos.
