Janine Jansen recordings / discography

As of January 2006, she had recorded two mainstream CDs (one also a hybrid SACD). The first is a collection of encore pieces, conducted by Barry Wordsworth, the second a chamber ensemble rendition of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. In particular, her Vivaldi recording has seen great success in terms of downloading sales.

In October 2006, she released her third album. This CD features the Mendelssohn and Bruch Violin Concertos, along with the Bruch Romance for Viola, with conductor Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

In 2007 she released her fourth album, Bach: Inventions & Partita.

In 2008, she recorded a live session for the iTunes music store consisting of Bach's Trio Sonata in G Major and Sonata for Violin and Harpsichord No. 6 In G Major.

In 2009 Jansen released her recording of the Beethoven and Britten Violin Concertos. The Beethoven was recorded with Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, and the Britten with the London Symphony Orchestra. Both orchestras were conducted by Paavo Järvi. Jansen said that recording these concertos together was a long-standing desire of hers, as she sees these two works as among the greatest concertos in the current repertoire.

Janine Jansen has been a member of the chamber music series [Spectrum Concerts Berlin] since 1998. Various CDs with Spectrum have been released on the NAXOS label: Ernö Dohnanyi - Serenade for String Trio and the Sextet (Nr. 8.557153) Robert Helps - Piano Quartet, Postlude and Nocturne (Nr. 8.559199) John Harbison - Four Songs of Solitude, Variations and Twilight Music (Nr. 8.559173)
