A Lunch Break With A Bach Partita as the Main Course
By Anthony Tommasini-New York Times-September 29, 2009

"Word has gotten out about Lunchtime Concerts, the informal free performances of chamber works at the intimate reading room in Philosophy Hall on the Columbia University campus. The series is sponsored by the Miller Theater and Columbia’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences."

Review of the first program:
Exciting young violinist Jennifer Koh playing Bach’s Partita No. 2 in D minor

Quotes from the review:
“And people started arriving up to 45 minutes before the program began to get a seat.”
“The ovation was so ardent that Ms. Koh, who had been visibly engrossed in her performance, wiped away tears.”
