For her first recital recording celebrated Dutch virtuoso Janine Jansen has chosen a program of French music performed with celebrated pianist Itamar Golan. The album “Beau Soir” is named after Debussy’s evocation of evening – takes us from dusk to the moonlit night, from lullabies into sleep, from dreams to awakening and recollection. Includes popular classics such as Fauré’s Berceuse and Après un rêve and Debussy’s Claire de lune are contrasted with three substantial works; sonatas by Debussy and Ravel, and Messiaen’s Theme and Variations. The album also includes three new works by the widely admired contemporary Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon, whose violin concerto Janine Jansen premiered in Paris in 2008.
