Overview

Listeners looking for an exercise in virtuosity may find Janine Jansen's 2007 Bach recording a disappointment; the serious nature of the program precludes showboating. But listeners hoping that Jansen had more musical individuality to offer than was revealed in her early recordings of standard violin showpieces may find this recording a wonderful surprise. In the "Inventions," Jansen is an equal partner with violist Maxim Rysanov and cellist Torleif Thedéen in performances of wit, feeling, and subtle grace. In the "Partita" and especially its excruciatingly ecstatic Chaconne, Jansen delivers consummate musicality and surpassing emotional honesty. Decca's sound is close and evocative.

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - Duncan Druce
Both sets of Inventions receive exceptional performances, bursting with spirit and imagination.... Throughout there's a sense of enjoyment that's most inspiring.
San Francisco Chronicle - Joshua Kosman
Vibrant chamber pieces for strings.... Jansen, violist Maxim Rysanov and cellist Torleif Thedéen unearth a wide range of tone colors and harmonic nuance.
Toronto Star - John Terauds
1/2 Compelling for its expressive power.... This is a treat for violin and chamber lovers alike.
