For Violin Alone
ArtistsJennifer Koh (violin)
Koh, “a virtuoso with quirky and wonderful ideas” (San Francisco Chronicle), again pairs two of J.S. Bach’s landmark Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin with Bach-inspired 20th- and 21st-century works.
On this series-finale album, Bach’s florid and fanciful Sonata no.2 in A minor and Sonata no.3 in C major, celebrated for its colossal Fuga movement, frame Luciano Berio’s expressive, chaconne-like Sequenza VIII and Pulitzer Prize winner John Harbison’s alluring For Violin Alone, a dance suite inspired by Bach’s partitas, written for Koh (a world-premiere recording).
Toronto’s The WholeNote said of Koh’s previous installment, Bach & Beyond Part 2, “Koh, as always, is superb, her intelligence and interpretation always matching her outstanding technique,” while the Newark Star-Ledger cited “her distinctive voice over a range of styles” in its praise of Bach & Beyond Part 1, which launched the series.
Bach & Beyond Part 3 is Koh’s 14th Cedille Records album. Her Cedille discography includes last season’s Limitless, on which she performs nine contemporary duets with the composers themselves. The Chicago Tribune named it among the “Best Classical Albums of 2019,” praising it as “a testament to Koh’s adventurousness and the creativity of all involved”. The Strad called it “an enterprising collection of breathtaking new music.” BBC Music Magazine’s 5-star review described the violinist’s Saariaho X Koh, devoted to music of Kaija Saariaho, “a delicate yet visceral recording”. Koh’s String Poetic, featuring the world-premiere recording of Jennifer Higdon’s title track, earned a Grammy nomination.
