In a validation of musical integrity, violinist Janine Jansen has become the digital age's biggest-selling classical musician. The Dutch wonder is a virtuoso whose head and heart are at the same high level as her technical skill. With this concept album, Jansen tackles impressionistic French sonatas that take the listener on a journey from dusk through deep night and into early morning again. Jansen and pianist Itamar Golan have a kinetic rapport and often change from dreamy ecstasy to razor-edge drama. Three new numbers stand alongside compositions from the likes of Debussy and Ravel.
