Violinist Jennifer Koh commissioned and premiered Vijay Iyer’s concerto “Trouble” in 2017. As part of “Composer Portraits: Vijay Iyer,” Koh will bring the work to the New York audience for the first time. She will be performing it with The Knights, under the baton of Eric Jacobsen. “Trouble” was the inaugural work in Ms. Koh’s multi-season commissioning project “The New American Concerto,” which asks composers of diverse backgrounds to rethink the form of the violin concerto for the 21st century and use it to engage with socio-cultural issues facing Americans today. In the case of Mr. Iyer’s concerto, these issues are discrimination and the immigrant experience.
