Jennifer Koh, violinist (Cedille CDR 90000 113; CD); $16.99. Jennifer Koh brings both a formidable technique and considerable warmth to this varied set of contemporary violin works. Her reading of Elliott Carter’s “Riconoscenza per Goffredo Petrassi” (1984), notable for its plush tone and evocative portamento, is a highlight, as are her expressive, vibrato-rich account of Augusta Read Thomas’s “Pulsar” (2003) and her thoughtful performance of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s “Lachen Verlernt” (2002).
