 Jennifer Koh Soloist


On her new album, Rhapsodic Musings, Koh brings her "deep musicality and an ear for the fine points of composers’ styles" - The New York Times to works from the dawn of the 21st century by Elliott Carter, John Zorn, Augusta Read Thomas, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.
 
Koh’s playing is sure to win new fans for Carter’s Four Lauds (1984–2000), a series of ingenious miniatures commemorating fellow musicians; Zorn’s mystical Goetia (2002), eight occult incantations using the same sequence of 277 pitches; Thomas’s blazing Pulsar (2002), which the composer describes as a "passionate, urgent, seductive" musical journey of self-discovery; and Salonen’s chaconne-like Lachen Verlernt (2002), a mini-drama that gains momentum as it unfolds with sounds "both furious and strangely gorgeous"-Los Angeles Times.
"Jennifer Koh is a hell of a violinist (sorry, couldn’t resist), and this is a most impressive recital."
 
Fanfare
 

"Jennifer Koh plays with intense beauty, a true master of her instrument..."
 
Musical Pointers
 

"Koh is undoubtedly a master at her instrument as well as a deeply thoughtful and emotionally sensitive artist. She glides through these works, for which the term ‘virtuosic’ seems pale, with authority, grace, power, and imagination There is so much to be praised here it seems necessary to make a list so as not to overlook anything."
 
Classical Voice of New England

“Koh is in her usual magnificent form in these essential and significant additions to a highly demanding performing genre.”
 
Terry Robbins - The WholeNote Magazine
 

"incandescent readings ... Koh’s account of [Carter’s] “Riconoscenza” is particularly striking for its rich tone and its evocative touches of portamento. Her free, expressive vibrato similarly enlivens “Pulsar” (2005), a fluid fantasy by Augusta Read Thomas. And Ms. Koh makes the eight aphoristic movements of John Zorn’s “Goetia” (2002) into a magnificently varied, thoroughly unpedantic overview of contemporary violin techniques, in which playfulness and introspection mingle."
 
Allan Kozinn - The New York Times
