Bach and Beyond
January 15, 2025

A journey through the timeless elegance of Bach and the innovative realms of contemporary violin.

2024/25 Season

The forward-thinking violinist dazzles as she brings each piece to life with modern interpretations.

Alongside her virtuosic artistry, Koh is known for her work in expanding the contemporary violin repertoire through commissioning projects and her efforts to support young composers. Named Musical America's 2016 Instrumentalist of the Year, Koh has won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Concert Artists Guild Competition and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Her Grammy award-winning Alone Together was a creative response to the pandemic, bringing composers together in support of the many freelancers among them.
