Sakari Oramo and Janine Jansen with Sibelius’s Violin Concerto
Violinist Janine Jansen is able to bring out the subtlest nuances of a work with focussed, introspective playing. This skill makes her ideally suited to the demands of Jean Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, with its delicate, clear-cut Nordic melodic lines. The conductor in this performance is Sakari Oramo, chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. The Berliner Philharmoniker will also play the First Symphony by the Danish composer Rued Langgaard – an ecstatic, late Romantic rarity, which was premiered by the orchestra in 1913.
