Janine Jansen returns to the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées with a performance of Beethoven's only violin concerto 

Beethoven  Violin concerto op. 61
Brahms  Symphony No. 1 op. 68

By bringing together two seminal works by Beethoven and Brahms, this concert seems to trace the transition from the power of Classicism to the expressivity of Romanticism. A work without precedent in scope, expressive power and above all length (almost 40 minutes long, with 25 minutes for the first movement alone), Beethoven’s only violin concerto is a true love poem in music. Rather than offering a showcase for instrumental virtuosity, it is a harmonious and powerful musical lesson. Together with other young players in their thirties, including Julia Fischer, Hilary Hahn and Lisa Batiashvili, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen is a member of an outstanding generation of female violinists. For this concert, she once again joins forces with conductor Paavo Järvi, with whom she triumphed in Paris a few months ago with her performance of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto. This is undoubtedly a reunion which promises great moments.
