American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Jennifer Koh joins with her teacher from her days at the Curtis Institute of Music, Jaime Laredo. The title of this release comes from the fact that the four pieces presented here have two violin soloists. The program begins with the venerable Bach concerto Commissioned by Koh and Laredo, Anna Clyne's Prince of Clouds (2012) is inspired by the concept of musical lineage. It is a lush, neoromantic work in one movement and the next best work after the Bach.
