In a refreshing juxtaposition of repertoire, Midori's first new recording in five years, features J.S. Bach's Unaccompanied Sonata No.2 in A Minor with Bartok's Sonata No.1 in C-sharp Minor. The SONY BMG Masterworks recording pairs Pianist Robert McDonald with Midori in the Bartok. "Both in my own personal listening and in concert programs, I really enjoy combining works from diverse historical periods - I believe they shed light on one another in the most wonderful way," says Midori, "so I thought it would be terrific to put these two great sonatas next to one another on a recording."
