Beethoven Violin Concerto in D, Op. 61

Evening Masterwork for August 27, 2019 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9 and at wsmr.org

Violinist Janine Jansen says music was an inescapable part of her early life.  She told Carnegie Hall Perspectives, her parents and two older brothers are all musicians. She was taught by a renowned Dutch music teacher starting at age six.  Jansen says that teacher formed chamber music ensembles with the children she taught. And in that setting, Jansen said she learned to listen, be more aware of what is going on and really communicate with her fellow musicians, “Instead of “getting stuck in your own music-making.” Tonight, Jansen is the soloist for Beethoven’s Violin Concerto on the Evening Masterwork. Don’t miss it at 7 p.m. on Classical WSMR 89.1, Sarasota, 103.9, Tampa and at wsmr.org.
