Notes & Reviews:

Janine releases a brand new Bach recording, joined by a hand-picked group of friends - all exceptional musicians. Janine's newest recording is released in the increasingly popular "Mastered for iTunes" format as well as full-resolution HD audio and CD. This is energizing Bach which is lustrous, new and vital made available in vivid, full studio-quality, sound. This is Bach for the Digital Age. Recording the popular E major and A minor concertos alongside the Violin and Oboe Concerto in C minor and two violin sonatas for the first time, Jansen and her ensemble explore these well-known works with a spirit of complete freshness. In the double concerto she is joined by two-time ECHO Award winner Ramón Ortega Quero. Janine's ensemble accompaniment on the recording includes her brother, cellist Maarten Jansen, and her father, harpsichordist Jan Jansen.

This record follows the unique chamber footprint that characterize many of her bestselling recordings. Janine has been a top selling artist since her debut recording in 2004 for Decca, and has sold more than 300,000 records. Her most recent album, a Prokofiev disc with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, went Gold in the Netherlands soon after release last autumn.

Her recording of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons has sold more than 20,000 albums digitally since February this year, became the iTunes #1 classical album in 37 countries from Austria to Vietnam, the #1 iTunes pop album in nine countries and hit the Top 10 iTunes pop chart in Brazil, India, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands and Singapore. To date the recording has sold 147,000 units since release, with 50,000 of these being digital sales. In addition the Vivaldi release has sold 100,000 single tracks downloads.

Janine's previous Decca recording of Bach Inventions and Partitas is her most-streamed album on Spotify, ahead of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. There are two digital bonus tracks on the Bach release exclusive for iTunes: the ever popular Air on a G String and Badinerie. Much of Janine's back-catalogue will be released in the "Mastered for iTunes" format, reinforcing her prime position as "The Queen of the Download".

BBC Music Magazine, Januar 2014
Jansens's approach is clearly influenced by the period instrument movement but by no means slavishly so...Sometimes there's a touch of creative tension between the historically-aware Jansen and her 'modern' violinist self...but there's a vivacity that invariably responds to the spirit of the dance.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
This is a distinctive and personal celebration of Jansen's highly inflected playing in the company of friends...Most noticeable in the general concerto canvas is how Jansen's quixotic, bold and spontaneous toying with Bach so often finds itself checked by her 'friends'.

The Times, 26th October 2013
Worth hearing for Jansen's driving speeds, nimble ornamentation, energy and elegant sense of Baroque style. The textures are spruce, and a particular success is the C minor Double Concerto with the delectable tone of oboist Ram=n Ortega Quero.
