Recognized for commanding performances of repertoire from the traditional to the contemporary, violinist Jennifer Koh is not one to rest on her laurels.

When the world shut down in the spring of 2020, Koh set to work commissioning both established and emerging composers to write brief musical moments. She then performed these new works online in a ten-part mini-series entitled “Alone Together” that The New York Times dubbed an “ambitious and heartening standout” of quarantine. For her Aspen program, Koh has created a contemporary tableau of selections drawn from that series.

A noted interpreter of Bach, Koh also includes in her program with the Sonata No. 3 for Unaccompanied Violin in C major. In this notoriously difficult work, Bach’s rich textures come together to create such a complete, full sound that it is hard to believe only one instrument is playing.

Time-honored and cutting-edge are seamlessly integrated in this addition to the 2021 Winter Music series!
