"Jansen and Decca have surpassed themselves with their new recordings of the Beethoven and Britten concertos. They confirm that digital technology has the potential to rival the best analogue recordings of 50 years ago. Jansen's bright silverly Beethoven is a miracle of fluency and passion; she fearlessly puts her stunning virtuosity totally at the service of an interpretation which mounts the music's splendid architecture with undisguised physical exhilaration. She plays Fritz Kreisler's first-movement cadenza like an eagle soaring high."
(Five Stars

"Whenever a violin repertory piece needs revitalising, there's one simple solution. Hire Janine Jansen to play it" THE TIMES

Dutch violin star Janine Jansen brings together the great concerto by Beethoven and the rarely heard concerto by Benjamin Britten.

"Two of the greatest concertos ever written" Janine Jansen

Janine records these concerti with two different orchestras to fully explore two very different sound worlds; the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen (Beethoven) and the London Symphony Orchestra (Britten).

Janine has loved and championed the Britten concerto since she first played it nearly ten years ago, and performed both these concerti with conductor Paavo Järvi many times, both in Europe and the US.

The recording of the Beethoven concerto follows the acclaimed Beethoven Symphony cycle form the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen under Paavo Järvi.
