Grand Changes for Orchestras and Halls

Countless New York performers are good musical citizens who do valuable work without complaint. Let me salute one of them: the brilliant violinist Jennifer Koh, who in September played the first three (of what will be six) free lunchtime concerts at Columbia University’s Philosophy Hall, devoted to a survey of Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin. Grateful music lovers on lunch breaks packed the intimate room to hear this fine young musician speak about and perform Bach’s remarkable works, just one per program. The opening concert made me proud to be a New Yorker.
