Hailed as an "epic traversal of solo violin repertoire" and a "monumental achievement" (Chicago Tribune), American violinist Jennifer Koh's complete Bach & Beyond recordings, pairing J. S. Bach's violin sonatas and partitas with 20th- and 21st-century works inspired by Bach's groundbreaking masterpieces, are now available in a convenient, economical boxed set offering all three albums for the price of two. Bach & Beyond Part 1 features Koh's "alluring performances" (The New York Times) of Bach's Partitas Nos. 2 and 3, Eugène Ysaÿe's Sonata No. 2, Kaija Saariaho's Nocturne, and the world-premiere recording of Missy Mazzoli's Dissolve, O My Heart, commissioned for Koh by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The Newark Star-Ledger cited the violinist's "distinctive voice over a range of styles. " Toronto's The Whole Note said of Bach & Beyond Part 2, "Koh, as always, is superb, her intelligence and interpretation always matching her outstanding technique" in Bach's Sonata No. 1 and Partita No. 1, Bela Bartok's Sonata for Solo Violin Sz. 117, BB 124, and Saariaho's Frises. Koh's Bach & Beyond Part 3 earned BBC Music Magazine's and ClassicsToday. Com's highest ratings for performance and recording quality. The Strad admired Koh's "eloquent, artful, yet unadorned playing" in Bach's Sonatas Nos. 2 and 3, Luciano Berio's Sequenza VIII, and the world-premiere recording of John Harbison's For Violin Alone, written for Koh. AllMusic said, "Koh's series is highly recommended to those in search of an experience that will reward repeated hearings. " Audiophile Audition called it a "remarkable three-disc effort, recommended to all with a good degree of urgency. "
