Bach: Violin Concertos - Janine Jansen

Janine Jansen and friends share their passion for Bach's chamber music. Album of the Weekend, 2-3 November 2013.

For her 'Bach Project', Janine Jansen is touring Europe joined by twelve of her closest musician friends. In June 2013, they committed to disc J.S. Bach's Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 2, two violin sonatas, and Bach's Concerto for Violin and Oboe - in which she is joined by oboist Ramón Ortega Quero.

Jansen can always be relied upon to bring a fresh approach to chamber music, which "is so revealing - your true personality shines through in your playing. It is one of my great loves,” Jansen has said in the past.

This album is no exception. Pure, thrilling, exhilarating playing.
