Janine jansen

One of today's brightest young stars, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen began performing aged six and went on to study with Coosje Wijzenbeek, Philipp Hirshhorn and Boris Belkin. She made her Concertgebouw debut in 1997 and was named a BBC New Generation Artist in 2002, making her London debut in the same year with Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra. Three years later she opened the 2005 BBC Proms - a performance that cemented her international reputation. She has performed with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Berliner Philharmoniker, London Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, the NHK Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and has worked with such eminent conductors as Lorin Maazel, Valery Gergiev, Riccardo Chailly, Neeme Järvi, Paavo Järvi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Daniel Harding, Sir Antonio Pappano, Sir Mark Elder, Edo de Waart and Sir Roger Norrington.
