Midori Goto was surrounded by music all her life. She was born to mother Setsu Goto, an accomplished violinist. It was due to her musical background that she inherited the love for violin. Midori’s mother started teaching her at a tender age of just three and later at six, she gave her first ever performance and played "24 Caprices" by Italian violinist Paganini. After moving to New York City in 1982 she started extensive violin studies at the Julliard Pre- College. She performed one of the most difficult violin pieces of all time "Chaconne" for her audition for college. A major breakthrough in her career came in 1982 when Midori debuted with the New York Philharmonic under the famed conductor Zubin Mehta. This event which took place on New Year’s Eve provided her with an impetus to start a grand musical career. Soon afterwards in 1986 she delivered a legendary performance at Tanglewood, a musical venue in Massachusetts. Despite breaking strings on two violins the artist won the heart of thousands. At the end of her passionate performance the conductor Leonard Bernstein was so moved that he knelt before Midori in awe. After this her life was completely entwined by music and she went on to conquer many world stages.
As Midori perfected and honed her own skill and her career propelled to grand heights she also decided to give back to society. In 1992 she founded a non-profit organization named ‘Midori & Friends’. The sole purpose of this establishment was to provide musical education in collaboration with public schools to under privileged children of New York. Midori also pioneered a similar organization ‘Music Sharing’ in her native country Japan. In acknowledgment of these activities and many others Midori received one of the greatest honors of her life in 2007 when she was named ‘Messenger of Peace’ by the UN secretary. Currently she serves as the music department head and professor at the University of Southern California.
Her discography comprises dozens of recording under the label of Sony BMG Masterworks. She has a total of fifteen albums; her latest work is "The Essential Midori" in which she follows the concerto and chamber music style. During the course of her three decade career Midori has been widely acclaimed and received various awards. In 2001 she was granted the Avery Fisher Prize for outstanding achievement in classical music. Prior to this award she received the Suntory Music Award in 1993 for the promotion of contemporary and western music in Japan. Midori was also named as ‘Distinguished Professor of Music’ by USC in 2012. The latest concert by Midori is scheduled to take place in the architectural marvel, Walt Disney Concert Hall. This venue would provide a tremendous experience for the audience because the hall is designed to be acoustically perfect.
