‘Janine Jansen & Denis Kozhukhin’

It is always a happy reunion with the Dutch top violinist Janine Jansen. Together with pianist Denis Kozhukhin, she treats you to a German romantic recital. Beethoven wrote his Ninth Violin Sonata for his good friend Rodolphe Kreutzer, who ironically refused to perform it because it was supposedly 'unplayable'. Throughout his life, Schubert felt Beethoven's overbearing presence, and found it difficult to compete with such a genius. Even though his Violin Sonata 'Grand Duo' has a Beethovenian feel at times, he is - above all - able to explore a personal lyrical power. In Brahms' last violin sonata, the concert ends in passion.
