“Marlboro has been my true musical home for many years now ... the place where I feel the most purely connected to music, and where the intensity and sheer joy of making music are most palpable to me ..." Jonathan has told The Violin Channel.

"To be joining Mitsuko, who has been an inspiration to me for so many years, in this leadership role, is humbling and thrilling in equal measure," he has said.

"It is a great joy to me that Jonathan, who also embodies the spirit of Marlboro, is joining me as co-director ... we will plot the future together," Mitsuko Uchida, 69, has told The Violin Channel.
