ABOUT THE ARTIST

Recognized for intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance, violinist Jennifer Koh is a forward-thinking artist dedicated to exploring a broad and eclectic repertoire, while promoting diversity and inclusivity in classical music. She has expanded the contemporary violin repertoire through a wide range of commissioning projects, and has premiered more than 70 works written especially for her. Her quest for the new and unusual, sense of endless curiosity, and ability to lead and inspire a host of multidisciplinary collaborators, truly set her apart. 

 

This past year, her project Alone Together captured the pandemic lockdown experience while amplifying underrepresented musical voices.

 

Her McCarter recital program will be drawn from her “ridge to Beethoven series, including Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata and the Bridgetower Fantasy by the jazz composer (and MacArthur Fellow) Vijay Iyer.

 

She will be joined at this performance by pianist Thomas Sauer.
