"The last movements of both [sonatas] fizz and crackle, but these performances are about so much more than dazzling pyrotechnics"
(BBC Music Chamber Choice Jan 2011)

"All the pieces here are beautifully played. Janine Jansen doesn't force her view of the music on the listener, concentrating here on an elegant, sophisticated style, but there's always a flicker of something - a little extra pressure, or a note with faster vibrato - that brings each phrase to life. Itmar Golan shows a similarly lively musical intelligence." (Gramophone)

"Jansen explores the violin's dynamic range to intoxicating effect...Even in a golden age of brilliant young female players...Jansen's profound sensitivity to phrase, colour, dynamic and atmosphere is special."
(Classic FM)

"this exquisite recital finds Janine Jansen at her most seductive...what impresses is the beauty of Jansen's hushed playing. The last movements of both [sonatas] fizz and crackle, but these performances are about so much more than dazzling pyrotechnics" (BBC Music Chamber Choice Jan 2011)
