When she was 10, Midori was an extraordinary child prodigy; now that that she is 25, she is something even more extraordinary -- one of the world's most thoughtful and provocative musicians. The great violinist visits D.A.R. Constitution Hall in Washington Saturday for an interesting program of works in which she will be partnered by her favorite collaborator, the superb pianist Robert McDonald.

The program includes two favorite works, Franck's ever-popular Sonata in A and Mozart's Sonata in F (K.376). Midori has always been interested in important pieces that have suffered undeserved neglect. Her program also includes Enescu's splendid Sonata No. 3 and the "Declamation" of Nicolas Flagello, one of this country's best, if unappreciated, composers.

The concert is Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Constitution Hall, 18th and D streets. Tickets are $17.50-$40 for adults and $10 for children. For tickets and further information, call the Washington Performing Arts Society at 202-833-9800.
