Biography

Janine Jansen (Utrecht, 1978) is a Dutch solo violinist.

Janine Jansen is internationally recognised as one of the great violinists and a truly exciting and versatile artist. Her London debut in November 2002, with the Philharmonia Orchestra and Vladimir Ashkenazy, was quickly followed by invitations from some of the world’s most prestigious orchestras, including the Berliner Philharmoniker, Royal Concertgebouw, London Symphony and Mahler Chamber orchestras, as well as the Chicago Symphony, The Philadelphia, Cleveland and NHK Symphony orchestras. She has worked with such eminent conductors as Valery Gergiev, Mariss Jansons, Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Chailly, Neeme and Paavo Järvi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Daniel Harding, Edo de Waart, Gustavo Dudamel and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Jansen has an exclusive recording contract with Decca (Universal Music). Her most recent release is a French recital disc entitled Beau Soir with pianist Itamar Golan. Each one of her previous five albums has been awarded a Platinum Disc for sales in The Netherlands. Renowned for her success on iTunes, her recordings have reached number one on the digital charts on a number of occasions.

Highlights of the 2010/11 season include performances with the New York Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish National Symphony orchestras and the Orchestre de Paris. Janine Jansen will be touring this season with both the London Symphony Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra. She also toured Japan with Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
