Violin

Janine Jansen

The Dutch violinist Janine Jansen has an enviable international reputation and regularly works with the world’s best-known orchestras and conductors. For The New York Times she is »as riveting in silence as in sound«.

Tours with Philippe Jordan and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as well as Valery Gergiev and the Münchner Philharmoniker and Sakari Oramo with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra are planned for the 2020/21 season. She will also be returning to Noseda and the London Symphony Orchestra, to Søndergård and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as well as to Daniel Blendulf and the Swedish Radio and the Singapore Symphony Orchestras.

Both The Royal Concertgebouw and the Konzerthaus Wien have honoured Janine Jansen with a ›Residency‹ for the 2020/21 season. In this context, she will be giving the world premiere of a new concerto for violin, clarinet and orchestra by Sally Beamish in Amsterdam. She will also be performing the first violin concerto by Dmitri Shostakovich. Valery Gergiev will be conducting.

As an enthusiastic chamber musician, Janine Jansen will be playing a number of concerts à deux together with the pianist Denis Kozhukhin in Carnegie Hall’s famous Stern Auditorium in New York. As ›Joint Guest Artistic Director 2020‹ she will also be returning to her roots at the International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht.

Since her recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2003, Jansen has had an exclusive contract with Decca Classics. She has won numerous prizes, including the Herbert von Karajan Prize 2020 and the Johannes Vermeer Prize (2018). Jansen studied with Coosje Wijzenbeek, Philipp Hirshhorn and Boris Belkin.

Jansen plays an exquisite Stradivarius ›Shumsky-Rode‹ violin (1715), on loan to her by a European patron.
