Of Note: A Musician’s Deep Dive into Vulnerability at the 'Edge of Youth'

Lisa-Marie Mazzucco

On a journey of musical and personal self-discovery, violinist Janet Sung dove into vulnerability to produce her latest album “Edge of Youth,” which represents who she is as an artist through personal expression.

“In order to really convey what all of the works were really offering, I would have to really look deeply and be utterly convinced of the thing that I was trying to communicate,” Sung explains about her individual interpretation. “It really starts to become something that comes from within yourself.”

The album also features Missy Mazzoli’s Dissolve, O my Heart, which spins off of Bach’s Partita in D Minor to build and unravel, breaking with the recognized Bach tradition to further Sung’s unique expression.
