"... intellectual clarity and the equivalent audio definition in a masterly production job by Decca’s engineers."
- Limelight

"Five Stars. Jansen is the most subtle of interpreters and always a sensitive partner. Jansen's colleagues in the companion pieces are her equals, too ... a masterly account of the Ravelian slow movement."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Editor's Choice. This splendidly recorded performance of the Second Concerto accentuates its stark and sudden contrasts ... Jansen and Brovtsyn employ a wide range of tone colour, matching each other in expansiveness and virtuosity."
- Gramophone

Janine Jansen performs one of Prokofiev's most beloved concertos, the Violin Concerto No. 2, accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by distinguished Prokofiev champion Vladimir Jurowski. The programme is rounded out with two chamber works: the Sonata for Two Violins with her fellow violinist Boris Brovtsyn, as well as the Violin Sonata No. 1 featuring pianist Itamar Golan. Although a pianist himself, Prokofiev developed a remarkable empathy for the violin which inspired some of his most beautiful and personal music, as displayed here.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
