Jennifer Koh: Bach and Beyond concert
Friday, November 30, 2012, 8 PM
EMPAC Concert Hall
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY
Jennifer Koh presents a concert from her Bach and Beyond series, a set of three solo violin recitals that strengthen the connections of the Six Sonatas and Partitas by Bach and the present day through a historical journey of solo violin works by Béla Bartók, Phil Kline, Kaija Saariaho, and John Zorn.
Violinist Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances. Since the 1994-95 season, when she won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the Concert Artists Guild Competition, and the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Koh has been heard with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. Also a prolific recitalist, she appears frequently at major music centers and festivals.
In 2009, she debuted Bach and Beyond, a six-year, three-recital series that explores the history of the solo violin repertoire from Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas to works by modern day composers and new commissions. jenniferkoh.com
