Violinist Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding
performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance.
Winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1994, she has
performed with top orchestras around the world. In Ithaca, she will lead
the Cornell Chamber Orchestra in composer Anna Clyne’s “Rest These
Hands.” This flows into Koh’s exploration of symbiotic composer-performer
relationships in her latest commissioning project, Limitless: On Stage
Together, which will feature composer/pianist Vijay Iyer. Named DownBeat
Magazine’s 2014 Pianist of the Year, Iyer is a 2013 recipient of a MacArthur
Fellowship, and serves as Professor of the Arts at Harvard University.
