Janine Jansen concludes Wigmore Hall residency and begins European chamber tour

11 May 2012

Although internationally-renowned for her concerto performances with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, Janine Jansen is also a devoted chamber musician and founder and curator of the annual International Chamber Music Festival Utrecht.

Fresh from her acclaimed performances of the Brahms Violin Concerto with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and Andris Nelsons last month, Janine embarks on a chamber tour throughout Europe, with fellow musicians Boris Brovtsyn, Amihai Grosz, Maxim Rysanov, Jens Peter Maintz and Torleif Thedeen.

As well as a concert in London - the conclusion of Janine’s 2011/12 residency with the Wigmore Hall - on 16 May, the group will perform Schubert’s String Quintet and Schönberg’s Verklärte Nacht in Hamburg, Eindhoven, Dortmund and Berlin.

The programme from this tour will be recorded and released on a CD in conjunction with the tenth anniversary of the festival in autumn 2012.

Following this tour, Janine will join Sakari Oramo in Helsinki for his farewell concert as Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, performing Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2.
