Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

On Rhapsodic Musings, Koh brings her "deep musicality and an ear for the fine points of composers’ styles" (The New York Times) to works from the dawn of the 21st century by Elliott Carter, John Zorn, Augusta Read Thomas, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Koh’s playing is sure to win new fans for Carter’s Four Lauds (1984–2000), a series of ingenious miniatures commemorating fellow musicians; Zorn’s mystical Goetia (2002), eight occult incantations using the same sequence of 277 pitches; Thomas’s blazing Pulsar (2002), which the composer describes as a "passionate, urgent, seductive" musical journey of self-discovery; and Salonen’s chaconne-like Lachen Verlernt (2002), a mini-drama that gains momentum as it unfolds with sounds "both furious and strangely gorgeous" (Los Angeles Times).
