Deeply committed to expanding the chamber music repertoire she has commissioned and premiered works by composers William Bolcom and Jennifer Higdon. A huge proponent of the works of George Enescu, her research on the music of George Enescu has led her to the rediscovery of Enescu’s first piano trio, a work lost for over 50 years. Her relentless efforts have received the recent praise of the New York Times, who credited her for being an authority on the newly discovered works of George Enescu. 2021-2022 season highlights include a recording of the Enescu trio on the Warner label and collaborations with Calidore quartet members, Frank Huang, and David Halen.
