“Koh has become one of the most impressive and expressive violinists on the scene.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times

No stranger to ambitious undertakings, violinist Jennifer Koh presents Shared Madness, an unprecedented project that speaks to the generous and supportive spirit that thrives within the musical community. Out of reciprocity toward the benefactors who helped purchase her instrument, Koh asked more than 30 composers to create short violin pieces exploring virtuosity in the 21st century. Koh will perform selections from this groundbreaking adventure that celebrates the creative dialogue between composer and performer as well as the commitment to fostering new music.

Featured composers:
Vijay Iyer
Gabriel Kahane
John Harbison
Julia Wolfe
and others
