Avenue Friend's Special Event

Visionary virtuoso Jennifer Koh’s Bridge to Beethoven project explores the impact and significance of Beethoven on a diverse group of composers and musicians. Her longtime recital partner and contemporary, acclaimed pianist Shai Wosner, joins Koh for this reflection on influence, innovation, and originality by some of the most incisive minds of classical music’s new generation.

Iyer’s Bridgetower Fantasy is a collection of imaginings about violinist George Bridgetower. It is not programmatic, but it takes on an episodic character assembled from contrasting fragments. The dance rhythms, recurring figures, and gestural contours are intended to feature the embodied expertise and expressivity of the performers.

Jennifer Koh, violin and Shai Wosner, piano
