Janine Jansen, season 2018-2019

We welcome Janine Jansen as Artist in Residence at Gothenburg Symphony season 2018-2019!

Janine Jansen comes from a musical family in Netherlands. Her dad plays the organ, cembalo and piano, her mother is a classical singer and her brothers play the cembalo, organ and cello. She started playing violin when she was six years old and debuted in 1997 with the prestigious Amsterdam Orchestra Concertgebouw. Since then, she has been captivating listeners all over the world with her formidable technique, her musical imagination and her artistic courage.

In 10-11 october Janine Jansen plays her first concert with the Gothenburg Symphony. On the program is Szymanowski’s first violin concerto from 1916, in which the Polish composer, like Debussy, seeks colours, sounds and rhythms that transport the listener to new, enchanted worlds. This music has passion and sensitivity, and should be performed with the same – Janine Jansen can certainly do that! During the season, Janine Jansen will also play chamber music with musicians from Gothenburg Symphony and Anders Eliasson violin concert Einsame Fahrt (“Lonely journey”).

Get to know Janine Jansen more in this playlist from Decca Classics, packed with her most loved recordings – from Vivaldi, Bach and Bruch to Bartok, Williams and Schönberg. And off course at the concerts with Gothenburg Symphony season 2018-2019.

Hélène Grimaud, season 2017-2018

The French pianist is Artist in Residence at the Gothenburg Symphony season 2017-2018.

Hélène Grimaud is an artist profile that is always looking for new angles. She is known for her intensity and musical acuity and her love of music is equally apparent in chamber music by Brahms and Debussy as in piano concertos of Beethoven and Ravel.

Hélène Grimaud’s passion for music is also reflected in the interest in animals and nature. She is working to spread the knowledge about wolves and their impact on humans and the ecosystem through the wolf sanctuary Wolf Conservation Center in the United States: “The wolves are endlessly fascinating creatures which have much to teach us humans.”

Hélène Grimaud is also active in the human rights movement Musicians for Human Rights and worked as a writer: she has published three books, an autobiography and two semi-autobiographical novels.
