Janine Jansen from the Netherlands is one of the most famous violinists in the world. The breadth of her repertoire is second to none, and she is highly acclaimed as both a soloist and chamber musician. Throughout the history of music the tradition of master and apprentice has been a cornerstone. The Crescendo programme provides gifted musicians at the outset of their careers opportunities of unique encounters with mentors – international soloists – through ensemble performance, coaching and personal contact. For her, making music involves listening and communicating with others. She is particularly forn of chamber music. ‘This is where the deepest emotions are aroused. Musical communication in chamber music format has been important for me ever since childhood,’ she has explained. She has her own chamber music festival in Utrecht in the Netherlands.
