Kohs recital would surely have felt special any place, given her ability to hold an audience spellbound for 90 nonstop minutes of new music enhanced by a reverberant enveloping acoustic that gave Kohs violin a lustrous aura. Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times Beloved violinist Jennifer Koh returns to perform part two of her acclaimed program Shared Madness. The ambitious project tells the story of a community of artists who wrote short works for Koh as repayment to the benefactors who helped her purchase a violin in exchange for new music. Comprised of 31 specially-commissioned pieces by contemporary-music luminaries, each piece [is] a virtuoso caprice that was about the violin and the violinist Shared Madness is a sharing of Kohs vastness (Los Angeles Times). Featured Composers: Philip Glass David Lang Bryce Dessner Andrew Norman Kaija Saariaho and others
