Janine Jansen, 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”).
