A spearhead on a Strad.
Janine Jansen from the Netherlands, one of the world’s most famous violinists, is recognised for the vast range of her repertoire. She has said that for her, making music consists of listening to and communicating with other people, and that chamber music is closest to her heart: ‘This is where the deepest emotions are awakened.’
The audience in Håkonshallen will have the pleasure of hearing the Stradivarius on loan from Norwegian Dextra Musica with which Janine Jansen was presented in 2016.
‘The violin deserves to be played by one of the world’s foremost musicians. Janine Jansen is a great star who plays with the best orchestras and conductors worldwide, a musician that everyone – musicians, media and not least audiences – loves,’ says Anders Bjørnsen, the director of Dextra Musica.
On this occasion she is accompanied by pianist Denis Kozhukin. They are joined by cellist Alisa Weilerstein for Shostakovich’s Piano Trio no 2 In E minor to round off the concert.
