Next year, the star violinist Janine Jansen will have her own festival in the Concertgebouw, based on Bach’s music, ranging from the solo sonatas to concertos. She will perform a number of violin concertos together with Amsterdam Sinfonietta.
Janine Jansen and Amsterdam Sinfonietta have enjoyed a long history of collaboration. The musicians are highly attuned to each other. Janine says it is a feast to work with the ensemble. ‘There is so much room for experimentation, some ideas are inspired during the actual performance,’ she explains. ‘The mutual trust creates a basis for making music with total freedom.’ The programme features diverse concerts by the great master. ‘Bach keeps you occupied for a lifetime.’ The star violinist considers his music perfect, spot on, down to the last detail.
