She is also a performer of tango and other Latin dance music, reflected in her collaboration with Ma and leading South American musicians on the Grammy Award-winning Sony CD, "Soul of the Tango," and its successor, "Obrigado Brazil." In the recording studio, she has created a large and eclectic body of work, including concertos and solo repertoire on a wide variety of labels. Current and forthcoming recordings include three discs with the Doric String Quartet.
