Pasatiempo - - NEWS - Jen­nifer Koh

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.
