Janine Jansen press reviews

“Beauty’s high point was scaled in the slow movement, with Jansen dancing in quiet melancholy….Phrasing, intonation, emotional pitch: from every angle, this was a performance to treasure.” (The Times, March 2010)

“…she expanded her coloristic palette considerably as the work unfolded, moving seamlessly between sweet-toned lyricism, menacingly dark timbres and a gritty, textured sound that gave the solo line an unusual urgency.” (The New York Times, February 2010)

“Her playing is sensationally good, in the Romantic tradition, and she proves an intense, impassioned advocate for Britten’s still neglected work.” (The Sunday Times)

“Taking possession of the music as if it were written for her, Jansen whipped up passionate flurries of figuration before caressing lyrical lines with the utmost tenderness. A triumphant debut to which the orchestra lent its most caring support.” (Chicago Tribune, June 2009)
