Jansen and Rachlin Play Mozart

Dutch violinist Janine Jansen is among the most dynamic performers before classical music audiences today. But in addition, she is a fine artist. She frequently collaborates with Julian Rachlin, another great solo violinist. In this video Jansen and Rachlin appear together in Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante in E flat major K. 364 for violin, viola and orchestra. Rachlin shows that he is also a master of the viola. The interplay between the soloists is remarkable. They toss musical ideas back and forth almost as if they were improvising. This is great music-making. The excellent orchestra is the Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia - located in the Spanish city of Coruna - conducted by Victor Pablo Perez.

Next week another video featuring Janine Jansen leading an extraordinary performance of the Schubert Octet.
