Notes & Reviews:

American violinist Jennifer Koh's Bach & Beyond Part 1 is the first in a three-part CD series based on her groundbreaking "Bach and Beyond" recital series, now underway in North America and overseas. With these inventive programs, Koh, "a virtuoso with quirky and wonderful ideas" (San Francisco Chronicle), sets out to illuminate connections between J.S. Bach's sonatas and partitas for solo violin and 20th- and 21st-century works, including pieces commissioned expressly for Koh and her Bach and Beyond project.

Audiophile Audition
Koh is equally committed to the past and present, and her rich catalog reflects this desire to propagate both in a harmonious and logical manner that makes sense of where music was and where it is now.

The New York Times
The violinist Jennifer Koh is known as both a masterly Bach interpreter and a champion of contemporary repertory. As part of her "Bach and Beyond" series, she pairs alluring performances of Bach's Partitas Nos. 2 and 3 with Ysaÿe's Sonata No. 2 and works by Kaija Saariaho and Missy Mazzoli.
