Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jansa Duo, a string duo founded in 2006 by Christine Rox and Klaus-Dieter Brandt, blends the principles of authentic performance with the accomplishments of contemporary practice. Brilliant virtuosity and a keen historical sensibility form the basis of the ensemble's approach to the highly diverse repertoire for violin and violoncello. The rediscovery of Duos for violin and violoncello by Heinrich Anton Hoffmann (1770-1842) was the starting point for a deeper examination of music for a combination of instruments that enjoyed tremendous popularity with composers, musicians and audiences from the early Classical to late Romantic period. In addition to violin concertos and variations for violin and orchestra, Niccolò Paganini wrote a Read more fair amount of chamber music. He was a virtuoso on the guitar as well as the violin. Aside from the Rondo for violin and violoncello (1831), Paganini composed the three Duetti concertanti presented on this recording. The CD is completed by Duos for violin and violoncello by Heinrich Anton Hoffmann and Friedrich Hermann. Read less
