General Admission

Beloved violinist Jennifer Koh returns to perform part two of her acclaimed program Shared Madness. The ambitious project tells the story of a community of artists who wrote short works for Koh as repayment to the benefactors who helped her purchase a violin in exchange for new music. Comprised of 31 specially-commissioned pieces by contemporary-music luminaries, “each piece [is] a virtuoso caprice that was about the violin and the violinist… Shared Madness is a sharing of Koh’s vastness” (Los Angeles Times).

Featured Composers:
Philip Glass
David Lang
Bryce Dessner
Andrew Norman
Kaija Saariaho
and others

“Koh’s recital would surely have felt special any place, given her ability to hold an audience spellbound for 90 nonstop minutes of new music… enhanced by a reverberant enveloping acoustic that gave Koh’s violin a lustrous aura.”– Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
