Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

    Two great violinists team up to perform four double-concertos, starting with Bach’s beloved Concerto for two violins in D minor. Rounding out the program are Philip Glass’s tranquil Echorus and two newly commissioned pieces by David Ludwig and Anna Clyne, inspired by Bach and written especially for Koh and Laredo. The orchestra features exceptional young players from the Curtis Institute of Music, Koh and Laredo’s alma mater, and the institution where they first played the Bach double together as teacher and student.
