Midori at Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra

Midori wears a black dress with lace sleeves. Her dark hair is slicked back into a bun, and a pearl hangs from her ear. She holds her violin across her chest, and she smiles softly at the camera.

BSO Assistant Conductor Samy Rachid leads the orchestra for the first time in an all-Russian program that begins with Svetlanov’s emotional “Dawn in the Field,'' followed by Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, with soloist Midori, and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, a piece celebrating victory through strife.
