Janine Jansen makes Singapore debut on October 19

Published on 12 September 2017

Renowned Dutch violinist Janine Jansen makes her Singapore debut on October 19 at the Esplanade Concert Hall with her husband, conductor Daniel Blendulf, playing the intensely virtuosic Sibelius Violin Concerto. The ethereal meandering beauty of Sibelius’s Swan of Tuonela makes a dark contrast to the bright melodies of Dvorak’s Symphony No.8

With an enviable international reputation, violinist Janine Jansen works regularly with the world’s most eminent orchestras and conductors. This season she is Artist-in-Residence at the London Symphony Orchestra (Gianandrea Noseda, Antonio Pappano and Valery Gergiev) complemented by a residency at Wigmore Hall, as well as Artist-in-Residence at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, where she will give both concerto and chamber performances.

Daniel Blendulf has established himself as one of Scandinavia’s most highly regarded young conductors. Following a number of much-anticipated international debuts last season, the current season sees Blendulf make his Japanese debut with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra and US debut with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. He will also return to the West Australian Symphony Orchestra to conduct their season opening concerts.
