Violinist and pianist form team to produce some beautiful music
Buffalo News

Violinist Jennifer Koh and pianist Shai Wosner’s longtime collaboration has been praised for its “breathtaking display of tight virtuosity” (Buffalo News) and “precision and wit” (San Francisco Chronicle). Their 2013 recording Signs, Games + Messages was noted for a “high level of technical assurance” by Gramophone. Their ambitious current project, Bridge to Beethoven, explores the impact and significance Beethoven and classical music has had on a diverse group of composers and musicians.  Bridge to Beethoven ­features new commissions from composers Andrew ­Norman, ­Vijay Iyer, and Anthony Cheung as companion pieces to Beethoven’s violin sonatas.  Bridge to Beethoven has ­created compositional conversations that inspire ­ownership of ­music from artists and audiences of diverse racial and ­ethnic lineage.  The project launched with a ­series of ­premieres in 2015.  

“From the fanfare-like opening onward, Koh and Wosner played with dazzling technical prowess. Wosner played with impeccable phrasing while Koh seemed virtually to attack her violin with fierce down-bows and pizzicatos.” Classical Source

“The vivid and tenderhearted rendition given by the performers made it feel nothing like a compulsory exercise. The combination of Wosner’s silky elegance and Koh’s more extroverted musical demeanor made a wondrous combination. There were precision and wit in abundance, and the [...] center of the piece unfolded with a wealth of eloquence and grace.” San Francisco Chronicle
