Notes and Editorial Reviews

For her first recital recording, Decca violinist Janine Jansen has chosen French music. Running through the album, entitled Beau Soir – after Debussy’s lovely early song, which she plays in a transcription for violin and piano – is the theme of night. Noted chamber-music specialist Itamar Golan partners the celebrated young Dutch virtuoso. With such familiar classics as Fauré’s Après un rêve; Clair de lune, another exquisite song by Debussy; Lili Boulanger’s Nocturne; and three new works by the widely admired contemporary Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon whose Violin Concerto Janine Jansen premiered in Paris in 2008, the programme moves from evening to moonlight, from lullabies into sleep, from dreams to awakening and Read more recollection. Also integrated into Beau Soir is music by Messiaen (his Theme and Variations for violin and piano) as well as violin sonatas by Debussy and Ravel.

 Enlightening November 23, 2011 By E. Lara See All My Reviews "Marvelous work both, piano and violin. I think both artists are wonderful. The french composition Beau Soir kept me wondering of the marvels of the universe, the world wi live in and so many beaty things in our lives. I have no vocabulary to express what i feel when I heard these two {maravillosos artistas]. Thank you for this opportunity to say something about how dear is life and its pleasures. enrique lara" Report Abuse
