Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. 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, Ms. Koh has been heard with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. Also a prolific recitalist, she appears frequently at major music centers and festivals. She is dedicated to performing the violin repertoire of all eras from traditional to contemporary, believing that the past and present form a continuum. The exploration of Bach’s music and its influence in today’s musical landscape has played an important role in Ms. Koh’s artistic journey. In 2009 she debuted “Bach and Beyond” a 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; she frequently performs all six Sonatas and Partitas in a single concert; and last season she launched “Two x Four” with her former teacher from the Curtis School of Music, violinist Jaime Laredo – a project that pairs Bach’s Double Violin Concerto with newly commissioned double concerti. Highlights of Ms. Koh’s 2013/14 season include “Bach and Beyond” recitals worldwide, “Two x Four” concerts with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Einstein in Philip Glass’s Einstein on the Beach in Los Angeles and Berlin, the New York premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s The Singing Rooms with the New York Choral Society at Carnegie Hall, and her Munich Philharmonic debut. Ms. Koh regularly records for the Cedille label. Her recording featuring works from her first “Bach and Beyond” recital was chosen as one of the best recordings of 2012 by the New York Times. Her most recent album “Signs, Games & Messages” with pianist Shai Wosner was released in October 2013.
