About Janine Jansen

Janine Jansen's 1997 debut with the Amsterdam Concertgebouw signaled the rise of a major violin talent. She remained little known outside of the Netherlands until her 2002 London debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy. Thereafter, invitations to appear with the major European and American orchestras poured in, and in 2003, she was awarded the Dutch Music Prize, the highest artistic award given in the Netherlands. In the 2007-2008 season, Jansen made impressive debuts with the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras. In 2011, her first recital disc, Beau Soir, with pianist Itamar Golan, was issued. In 2021, she was accompanied by Sir Antonio Pappano on the album 12 Stradivari, featuring Jansen performing on 12 of the legendary luthier's surviving violins.
