Fresh from the success of her widely lauded Bach and Beyond, Jennifer Koh undertakes an ambitious new project. This time, with pianist Shai Wosner, she probes the impact of Beethoven on a diverse group of composers and musicians, exploring ideas about art making and identity. “Bridge to Beethoven is about coming to an understanding of oneself in a foreign context through music,” says Koh.
Program: Beethoven: Sonata No. 1 in D Major, op. 12, no. 1 Vijay Iyer: "Bridgetower Fantasy" Beethoven: Sonata No. 9 in M Major, op. 47 ("Kreutzer")
