Although himself a pianist, Prokofiev developed a remarkable empathy for the violin which inspired some of his most beautiful and personal music. On this album, Janine Jansen performs one of his most beloved concertos, Violin Concerto No.2, conducted by the distinguished Prokofiev champion Vladimir Jurowski with two chamber works that Prokofiev composed in the same decade.

‘her silvery tone and searching musicianship ensure maximum intelligence and beauty . . . simple, unaffected magic . . . [Concerto]: splendidly played by a soloist in happy harness with the London Philharmonic and Vladimir Jurowski, a conductor who understands Prokofiev's changing moods better than most . . . equally gripping accounts of the Sonata for Two Violins of 1932 and the dark and worried Sonata for Violin and Piano . . . Itamar Golan (piano) and Boris Brovtsyn (violin) play with Jansen as if joined at the hip.' The Times

‘The characteristic, broad, vaulted lyricism of the concerto is hauntingly expressed by Janine Jansen, notably in the slow central movement where it is underpinned by the insistent orchestral ticking that is eerily evoked by the London Philharmonic under Vladimir Jurowski. He judges the variety of weight and the palette of colour in the orchestral sonority ideally, and is ready with the essential instrumental dialogues with the soloist in the finale . . . this penetrating, luminous and dynamic interpretation is one to linger over . . . [First Sonata]: [the two are] conveying the music's dark, ominous undertones, its mellow reflectiveness and its fierce, nervous energy.' The Daily Telegraph
