Violinist Janine Jansen works regularly with the world’s most eminent orchestras and conductors. This season she is artist-in-residence with Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, performing a variety of concerto and chamber music programs in Zurich and Gothenburg throughout the season. She is also featured artist at the Mozartwoche Salzburg, where she performs with the Vienna Philharmonic and Bernhard Haitink.
Her orchestral highlights this season include engagements with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (conducted by Valery Gergiev), Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (Iván Fischer), Orchestre de Paris (Daniel Harding), and London Philharmonic (Vladimir Jurowski). She embarks on a major tour of Japan and South Korea with London Symphony Orchestra and Simon Rattle, as well as European tours with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Harding, Chamber Orchestra of Europe with Antonio Pappano, and twice with Camerata Salzburg (with Daniel Blendulf, performing Bernstein’s Serenade during the composers’ centenary celebrations, and again in connection with the Mozartwoche Salzburg).
A devoted chamber musician, Ms. Jansen embarks on a European recital tour with pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk, offering a Romantic program that includes works by Clara and Robert Schumann, Brahms, and Franck. The tour takes her to major European concert halls, such as Amsterdam, London, and Berlin.
She records exclusively for Decca Classics. Since the release of her Vivaldi’s Four Seasons recording, in 2003, she has been extremely successful in the digital music charts. Among her numerous honors are, most recently, the Johannes Vermeer Prize, awarded by the Dutch Government for outstanding artistic achievement.
Janine Jansen studied with Coosje Wijzenbeek, Philipp Hirshhorn, and Boris Belkin. She plays the 1707 Stradivarius “Rivaz-Baron Gutmann” violin kindly on loan from Dextra Musica.
