Jennifer Koh Violin
Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. She is dedicated to performing the violin repertoire of all eras from traditional to contemporary, believing that the past and present form a continuum. 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, she has been heard with leading orchestras worldwide and appears frequently at major music centers and festivals as a prolific recitalist. The exploration of Bach’s music and its influence in today’s musical landscape has played an important role in her artistic journey. Her Bach and Beyond recital series explores the history of the solo violin repertoire, pairing Bach’s six Sonatas and Partitas with works by contemporary composers. She premiered Bridge to Beethoven, a series of recitals with pianist Shai Wosner pairing Beethoven’s complete violin sonatas with new works by Andrew Norman, Vijay Iyer and Anthony Cheung, in April 2015, and launched a video series Off Stage On Record, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a concert artist, on her YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/jenniferkohviolin, in 2014.
