Jennifer Koh & Shai Wosner
Albany Times-Union

By Joseph Dalton

The program book at Union College gave no name to the 75-minute flow of continuous music performed by violinist Jennifer Koh and pianist Shai Wosner on Sunday afternoon at Union College. But Koh’s website bills the concert as “Bridge to Beethoven.” The event consisted of the three Violin Sonatas from Beethoven’s Opus 30 performed with a new introduction and two interludes by composer Andrew Norman.

Putting aside the contemporary for a moment, the afternoon showcased early Beethoven, much of it on the scale and style of Mozart. Koh and Wosner performed beautifully together, offering a lean sound that was often consoling and always lovely. The Adagio in the first sonata, for example, was intimate and detailed and felt like a long letter home. One sometimes just wanted to curl up in the warmth and intimacy of their playing.
