Violinst Jennifer Koh "combines a questing spirit with tonal refinement and a kind of fearless virtuosity" (San Jose Mercury News). She's sure to shine under the baton of Xian Zhang in Sibelius' lofty yet visceral concerto. MOZART Cosi fan tutte Overture Vivacious and sly, this overture completely embodies the opera's effervescent spirit. SIBELIUS Violin Concerto Glistening, ominous, symphonic. Koh's fiery technique serves her well in this concerto, which confounded violinists in Sibelius' day. SCHUBERT Symphony No. 9, "Great" Schubert conjured a robust heir to Beethoven's masterpiece with his splendid Ninth, written only a year after its predecessor.
