Overview

Beethoven: Violin Sonata in D Major, Op. 12, No. 1

Iyer: Bridgetower Fantasy [Philadelphia Premiere]

Beethoven: Violin Sonata in A Major, Op.47 “Kreutzer”

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 in the new generation of classical music. Iyer's Bridgetower Fantasy is a collection of imaginings about 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.
