ON THE COVER
When Jennifer Koh got into a financial bind trying to acquire a fine violin, help arrived from some music-loving philanthropists and a circle of composers. The happy result was the creation of “Shared Madness,” a collection of 32 new pieces for solo violin. This dynamic champion of contemporary music plays half of those pieces in town on Friday evening, in a recital hosted by Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and on Saturday she’ll dig into her instrument’s past with an all-Bach concert. On the cover is a photo of Koh by Jürgen Frank.
