Image Bach & Beyond Part 2
Violinist Jennifer Koh's 'Bach & Beyond Part 2' is the newest instalment in a three-CD cycle based on her ground-breaking, multi-year recital series of the same name. Koh, "a masterly Bach interpreter and a champion of contemporary repertory" (The New York Times), performs J S Bach's landmark violin Sonatas and Partitas alongside 20th and 21st century solo violin works they've inspired, including new commissions.'Bach & Beyond Part 2' offers J S Bach's expressive Sonata No.1 and contemplative Partita No.1 for solo violin, Bela Bartok's lyrical Sonata for Solo Violin, and the world premiere recording of Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho's alluring, otherworldly Frises for violin and electronics.In concert and on disc, Koh's adventurous 'Bach and Beyond' programs have yielded transcendent listening experiences that illuminate Bach's violin cornerstones and works by latter-day composers Koh deeply admires. "The juxtapositions have been hailed as brilliantly insightful programming while the demanding and daring performances showcase the dynamic, even athletic, fiddling of an artist at the top of her game", said the Santa Barbara Independent.

Renowned violinists Jennifer Koh and her distinguished mentor Jaime Laredo illuminate captivating connections between composers across the centuries, in Two x Four, an album of four double-violin concertos, performed with the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble conducted by Vinay Parameswaran. The compositional touchstone is J.S. Bach’s Violin Concerto in D minor, BWV 1043, an innovative work that introduced new ways for two solo violins to converse with each other and with orchestra. Koh and Laredo leap from the Baroque to the late 20th-century for Philip Glass’s attractive, hypnotically undulating Echorus on the theme of compassion. Two new works commissioned expressly for the project receive world premiere recordings. Anna Clyne’s impressionistic Prince of Clouds is “a winner . . . . This is music one can listen to again and again and find new things to appreciate each time” (Chicago Tribune). David Ludwig’s evocative Seasons Lost, a contemporary counterpart to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, is “full of beautiful ideas contrasting with playful/menacing Vivaldian gestures” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

Produced by multiple Grammy Award winner Judith Sherman, Two x Four mirrors the performers’ groundbreaking concert program of the same name, which they recently toured across the U.S. Time Out New York calls the project “intrepid violinist Jennifer Koh’s latest programming brainstorm.” “‘Two x Four’ Equals Sublime,” proclaimed Philadelphia’s LocalArtsLive. Record buyers are already aware of Koh’s keen instincts for connecting Bach with later composers through her Cedille album Bach and Beyond Part 1, named one of the best recordings of 2012 by the New York Times

Koh’s tour schedule for the first half of 2014 includes, in chronological order, Tokyo; Milwaukee, Wis.; Cincinnati, Ohio; New York (Miller Theater and Carnegie Hall); Düsseldorf, Germany; Aspen, Colo.; Metz, France; Berlin, Germany; Lahti, Finland; Santa Fe, NM; Los Angeles (a Two x Four concert).

Image Signs, Games + Messages
Grammy-nominated violinist Jennifer Koh and virtuoso pianist Shai Wosner play 20th-century works by three remarkable Central European composers who intertwine folkloric influences with their own unmistakable originality.The album includes Leoš Janácek’s Moravian influenced Sonata for violin and piano, Béla Bartók’s impassioned Violin Sonata No. 1, and compelling miniatures by György Kurtág, including Tre Pezzi for violin and piano and selections from Signs, Games and Messages.

An ideal duo for this riveting repertoire, Koh, a “high-octane” violinist (The Strad), is renowned for her “potent performances and unusually thoughtful recitals and recordings” (The New York Times) while Wosner possesses a “keen musical mind and deep musical soul” (NPR’s “All Things Considered”). On their live performance, The Philadelphia Inquirer praised Koh’s “strikingly beautiful” playing in the Bartok sonata. Wosner brought a “diaphanous tone deeply sympathetic to the Debussy-like writing” to the Janácek.

This is Koh’s eighth album on Cedille Records. Her String Poetic was nominated for a chamber music Grammy award, and her Violin Fantasies was the subject of an in-depth interview on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” She’s also recorded for Chandos and Telarc. Wosner, a BBC New Generation Artist and fellow recipient (to Koh) of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, is known to record buyers for his critically acclaimed albums on the Onyx label.

Image Violin Fantasies
'"Fantasy" offers a composer one of the freest possible musical forms. When I first began thinking about this recording, I saw an opportunity to present a program of four very different composers speaking through this very free form in their distinct voices. In the months preceding the recording sessions, I lost two friends in close succession. Fortunately, I had the work of preparing these fantasies to delve into. In the midst of my preparations, I began to perceive a common thread among the pieces, besides the theme of "fantasy." I began to understand each piece as a life's journey. Each fantasy expressed itself as an entire life to me: a search to find one's own path with all of its joys and struggles along the way. I would like to dedicate this recording to my two friends and to the celebration of life.' - Jennifer Koh
