Troy, NY — The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute announces Bach and Beyond, a solo violin performance by Jennifer Koh. The concert will take place in EMPAC’s Concert Hall on Friday, November 30 at 8 PM. Jennifer Koh presents a concert from her Bach and Beyond series, a set of three solo violin recitals that strengthen the connections of the Six Sonatas and Partitas by Bach and the present day through a historical journey of solo violin works by composers such as Béla Bartók, Phil Kline, Kaija Saariaho and John Zorn.

Violinist Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. Since the 1994-95 season, when she won the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the Concert Artists Guild Competition and the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Koh has been heard with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. Also a prolific recitalist, she appears frequently at major music centers and festivals.
