Notes & Reviews:

In partnership with acclaimed maestro Sir Antonio Pappano, Decca's best-known violinist, Janine Jansen, couples one of the best-loved violin concertos ever written - Brahms' Violin Concerto with Bartok's Violin Concerto No. 1, a moving work with a passionate narrative. Musically exhilarating, Janine's performances of Brahms (with the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia) and Bartok (with the London Symphony Orchestra) were recorded in vivid high-definition sound.

The Telegraph, 24th November 2015 *****
The interpretation of the Brahms represents a true meeting of minds: Jansen possesses all the intellectual authority and expressive weight that the first movement requires, yet this is tempered by the wonderful spectrum of tone and the fluidity of pulse she can summon in the slow movement...Altogether a highly desirable disc.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
Jansen gives us a lyric reading [of the Brahms] of rare inwardness and beauty...it is a performance that marries meditation with motion, such is the suppleness of Jansen’s and Pappano’s feel for the concerto’s larger symphonic movement and the hand-in-glove relationship that exists between soloist, conductor and Pappano’s superbly responsive Santa Cecilia orchestra.

The Guardian, 7th January 2016 *****
[The Santa Cecilia Orchestra's] sound is rich and weighty, the better to support Jansen’s interpretation, itself heavyweight yet characteristically mercurial. Jansen’s playing glows, and the second theme of the first movement really sings; here and throughout, there is the feeling that Jansen wants every phrase to say something.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
The Bartok is a revelation.Somehow Jansen manages to coax this music out of its accustomed reticence, but without any sense of forcing it... at last, this concerto really does sing of unrequited love, well aided by the warm and beautifully balanced recording.
