Janine Jansen


Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

Janine Jansen plays Bruch

Janine Jansen is soloist in Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No 1 in G Minor.

In recent seasons, Dutch star violinist Janine Jansen has collaborated with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and performed recitals at Konserthuset. During the 2014–15 season, Jansen was also the concert hall’s artist-in-residence.

Now she will take her place on stage with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra; this time, with American conductor Karina Canellakis on the podium. The programme includes a classic and beloved violin concerto: Max Bruch’s Concerto in G Minor. A piece with divinely beautiful passages and an irresistible romantic charge – not to mention a fantastically masterful finale!  

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 has been named the Fate symphony, after the four notes in the leading theme which, according to Beethoven, sound like “fate knocking at my door.” The symphony is in its entirety one of music history’s greatest masterpieces and is a gateway to classical music for many people. 

The concert will begin with Britta Byström’s glittering, bright and dreamy Persuasion. Britta Byström has positioned herself as one of Sweden’s most played and popular composers and was the focus of Konserthuset’s Composer Weekend 2010.
