For a famous violinist, Midori cuts an intentionally low profile, so you can be forgiven for not noticing that she will be performing a Bay Area recital soon, for San Francisco Performances.

Bach lovers should be swarming the theater, but don’t let that deter a visit to explore these marvelous pieces for the first time.
