About the Album
Janine Jansen has gained a worldwide critical following for her fresh look at the pillars of core violin repertoire and her intense and lyrical approach to the music. After her successful Vivaldi Four Seasons recording, Jansen presents her first major concerto album. This recording, conducted by Riccardo Chailly, has strong historical and musical connections–the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchester was conducted by Mendelssohn for many years and the group premiered his concerto in 1844. This recording also presents a real discovery, the Bruch’s Romance for Viola & Orchestra, recorded on disc on viola for the first time.
