Notes & Reviews:

"Her violin tone is distinctive, clear and bright, not at all fruity in a conventional way, encouraging her to take a light, athletic view of allegros, adopting daringly fast speeds in the finales of both concertos. The purity of her violin sound goes with precise control of dynamic with refined half-tones, and Chailly's conducting of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, with its Mendelssohnian heritage, helps the soloist to build up in these live performances the essential tensions and emotional thrust." -Gramophone

The Times
If one had to evoke the Dutch violinist Janine Jansen in a word, it would be energy
