Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

With a playing style that combines gripping presence and infinite subtlety of tone, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen has critics reaching for every superlative in the book. She is a recipient of the highest distinction an artist can receive in the Netherlands, the Dutch Music Prize from the Ministry of Culture, and the NDR Musikpreis for outstanding artistic achievement. She brings to Oxford her visionary interpretation of Brahms's Violin Concerto -a breathtaking synthesis of lyrical beauty and the spice of Hungarian gypsy music - before Music Director Marios Papadopoulos directs the Orchestra in Brahms's mighty fourth symphony.
