'Her Bach encore was beautifully ornamented, extraordinarily tasteful and delicately executed.' The Strad, describing Janine Jansen's Bach. Earlier that evening, she had played Brahms' violin concerto with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and Jaap van Zweden, with the audience interrupting her with thunderous applause after each movement. 'She elicited an intense and rich sound from her instrument, and the impressive control of her bow and her technical mastery allowed her to draw long phrases regardless of technical difficulty. Each note seemed to grow out of the one before it and connect with the next in a remarkable way.' Yes - you're Holland's greatest violinist or you're not.

There will be a free concert introduction at 19:30, co-sponsored by the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven Friends Association.

With all the grand things coming her way - a star artist in great demand worldwide - the Utrecht violinist does not forget the small and modest. Celebrated in the great solo concerts, she is a grandiose chamber musician and also plays Bach. His inventions were featured on one of her beautiful CDs; now she can be heard in both Bach's violin concertos and in a double concerto. Written in the 1720s, these are among the first concertos that allowed the solo violin to spread its wings.
