NEW YORK, NEW YORK (November 15, 2021) — Violinist Jennifer Koh headlines a free Music Mondays concert that pairs Beethoven Violin Sonatas, performed with pianist Thomas Sauer, with selections from her critically acclaimed Alone Together commissioning project, including two world premieres to be added to the series. Launched last year in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Alone Together supports freelance musicians by engaging a diverse group of established composers—many of whom have salaried positions—to both donate a new solo-violin composition and recommend a freelance colleague for a formal commission. The new works to be premiered were donated by composer-violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain and commissioned, at his recommendation, from composer-pianist Deanna Rusnock. The Beethoven Violin Sonatas to be performed are Op. 12, No. 1 in D major and the “Kreutzer” Sonata (Op. 47 in A major).
