Janine gets right to the heart of the music

There are very few classical musicians that rise well above just playing their instrument perfectly, and get right to the heart of the music itself. This capability is well past technique, and is more about expression. Yo-Yo Ma does this on the cello, and Andres Segovia did on the guitar. This capacity is difficult to define, but you know it when you hear it - the spine tingles, even upon repeated hearings. Janine Jansen is this class of musician. In addition to this record, check out the Bach album where she plays the 2 and 3 part inventions. I know that music well, and never has it moved me with such emotion.

Janine Jansen rocks!

I first heard of this girl in Town and Country magazine and she sounded very interesting. I play the violin and I know how tough it can be to play it. I think she is an amazing artist and I love her music!

disagree with "genius violinist"... Janine plays beautifully

Dear "Genius Violinist", maybe you could point us to your repetoire of recordings and let us be the judge. Somehow, from my perspective at least, that seems a lot more democratic way to assess your skills in comparison to Janine's. I saw her at the Kennedy Center several months ago and while I would agree with you that her sound is maturing, she plays beautifully and with experience I only expect her sound to improve. Afterwards she was talking with people in the lobby and appeared very gracious and reachable in a way many musicians aren't these days. I believe these recordings substantiate my opinion, but as noted, would be glad to listen to yours as well. Good music is a beautiful thing and I'm always interested in learning about great new artists. Best of days to you.

Thereafter, invitations to appear with the major European and American orchestras poured in, and in 2003 she was awarded the Dutch Music Prize, the highest artistic award given in the Netherlands.
