Janine releases a brand new Bach recording, joined by a hand-picked group of friends - all exceptional musicians. Recording the popular E major and A minor concertos alongside the Violin and Oboe Concerto in C minor and two violin sonatas for the first time, Jansen and her ensemble explore these well-known works with a spirit of complete freshness. In the double concerto she is joined by two-time ECHO Award winner Ramón Ortega Quero. Janine's ensemble accompaniment on the recording includes her brother, cellist Maarten Jansen, and her father, harpsichordist Jan Jansen.
This record follows the unique chamber footprint that characterize many of her bestselling recordings. Janine has been a top selling artist since her debut recording in 2004 for Decca, and has sold more than 300,000 records. Her most recent album, a Prokofiev disc with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, went Gold in the Netherlands soon after release last autumn.
Her recording of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons has sold more than 20,000 albums digitally since February this year, became the iTunes #1 classical album in 37 countries from Austria to Vietnam, the #1 iTunes pop album in nine countries and hit the Top 10 iTunes pop chart in Brazil, India, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands and Singapore. To date the recording has sold 147,000 units since release, with 50,000 of these being digital sales. In addition the Vivaldi release has sold 100,000 single tracks downloads.
