Product Description

About the Artist

Ever since her Concertgebouw debut in 1997, Janine Jansen has been a huge star in her native Holland. Today she is internationally recognised as one of the great violinists - a truly exciting and versatile artist. Her London debut in November 2002, accompanied by the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy, was quickly followed by invitations from some of the world's most prestigious orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, London Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, as well as the NHK Symphony Orchestra. She has worked with such eminent conductors as Lorin Maazel, Valery Gergiev, Riccardo Chailly, Neeme Järvi, Paavo Järvi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Daniel Harding, Sir Mark Elder, Edo de Waart and Sir Roger Norrington. Janine Jansen has an exclusive recording contract with Decca. Her latest release, an album of the Beethoven Violin Concerto (Kammerphilharmonie Bremen) and the Britten Violin Concerto (London Symphony Orchestra) under Paavo Järvi, shows that "Jansen's extreme beauty of tone and phrasing is definitely alluring . . ." (Times, London, November 2009). Each one of her five previous albums has been awarded a Platinum Disc for sales in The Netherlands. Highlights of the 2009/10 season include performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the London Symphony, Philharmonia and Philadelphia Orchestras and the Orchestre de Paris. Janine Jansen is touring with the Orchestra of Hessischer Rundfunk, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Mariss Jansons in Spain and the US. She has been invited to curate a "Carte Blanche" series at the Concertgebouw throughout the 2009/10 season - which includes an innovative choreography project with regular chamber partners Martin Fröst and Itamar Golan and choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter Scholten as well as an educational project with Aleksey Igudesman, concerts with the Münchner Philharmoniker and a play/direct project with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra as part of a European tour. In addition to her concerto performances and projects, Janine is a devoted performer of chamber music. She established and curates the annual International Chamber Music Festival in Utrecht, and since 1998 she has been a member of Spectrum Concerts Berlin, an important chamber music series in the Berlin Philharmonie. Her chamber partners include Leif Ove Andsnes, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Mischa Maisky, Julian Rachlin, Torleif Thedéen and Maxim Rysanov. Janine studied with Coosje Wijzenbeek, Philipp Hirshhorn and Boris Belkin. She was a BBC New Generation Artist and in September 2003 she received the Dutch Music Prize from the Ministry of Culture - the highest distinction an artist can receive in The Netherlands. She has received numerous awards including the Edison Classic Public Award three times, an Echo award for her Vivaldi recording in 2006 and her Mendelssohn/Bruch album in 2007 as well as the NDR Musikpreis for outstanding artistic achievement in 2007. In May 2009 she was awarded the RPS Instrumentalist Award 2008 for performances in the UK during that year.

Format: Audio CD
Janine Jansen is one of the top violinists in a time when we are blessed with a large number of truly fine young musicians. She has beauty of presence both as soloist with orchestra and as a recitalist, a secure technique, and one of the creamiest
sounds to some from anyone's violin. This recital BEAU SOIR is all of a mood - that dream time, the gloaming so well define by the French school. This is music for the romantic ear and it is completely satisfying on every level. Her impressive collaborator is Itamar Golan at the piano.

The recital opens with Claude Debussy (1862-1918) Sonata for Violin and Piano in G minor - eloquent! - and encored by Debussy's 'Beau Soir' and 'Clair de lune' (both in transcriptions for the violin and piano). Jansen then wisely updates the repertoire with some new works by contemporary Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon - 'La Minute exquise', 'Hypnos' (written for Jansen and this particular album) and 'Retour à Montfort-l'Amaury' (also written for this recital). If all of this composer's music is as appealing and immediately accessible as these works then he as a very promising future.

It s always a pleasure to encounter another work by the gifted Lili Boulanger (1893-1918) and here it is a beautiful 'Nocturne'. And again as a well timed change of pace Jansen offers from Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) his 'Thème et Variations pour violin et piano', a work of utter tranquility but with technical demands for both violin and piano. 'Après un rêve' by Gabriel Fauré (1845- 1924) follows, a perfect reverie.

The playing is superbub yet I do hope the recording engineer in the future can place the mic a little further away from the player to avoid recording his/her breathing as well which is quite noticeable in this album.
