Janine Jansen has announced that she is to leave management agency Harrison Parrott for personal representation by Alexandra Schulz.

The violinist broke the news on her website:

'For the last twelve years, I have enjoyed a very successful and supportive collaboration with Harrison Parrott, which has been an experience of high quality, both professionally and personally.  However, at this stage in my life, I have decided it is more appropriate for me to have a personal manager.  I have therefore decided to employ Alexandra Schulz in this capacity, who will, with immediate effect, take over all aspects of my work.  Alexandra and I worked together for several years at Harrison Parrott. I would like to pay tribute to everything Harrison Parrott has done for me over the last twelve years.'

Harrison Parrott executive vice chairman Linda Marks commented: 'It has been a privilege to have worked for such a wonderful artist, who is truly one of the world’s great violinists. We are proud of what we have achieved for Janine and wish her every success in the future.'
