Live performances is like a box of chocolate…

Ronny, you can’t ask questions like this. Janine Jansen is from an assemblage today young violinist that all create a lot of buzz and they all have very impressive playing techniques. (When I said “young violinist” I mean “not dead yet”).  Unfortunately nowadays it is enough to make media buzz, sell CDs and book concerts hall. Still, they all can play. HOW they play from the perspective of interpretive originally is totally different subject. Most of them very average in team of personally of play and have very little to say despite the tremendous technical capacity to speak.  Saying that I have to admit the many of them at different events threw very good performances, as some of them phenomenal performances. The whole point to attend a live concert that you never know what happen.

Generally if a soloist was able to book a decent orchestra and decent concern hall then it is more or less assurance that she/he has a rudimental familiarity with the music and the instrument.  Everything further is up to you listening intercourse. Look who is conducting and what the orchestra. Look what the program for the concert and if you have any personal interest in the music played. If you do not know the girls then read a few of her interviews  to get what  she thinks, although in most of the cases it will not be the girl taking but her PR peoples butter up publicity around her. Look if your local radio will broadcast the concert. Most good stations “warm up” the community before the soloist arrival, playing the soloist’ recordings a few days ahead – that is a good way to assess own interests.

In the end if you care about the played music then any live event with the piece that you care is worth attention. I will extend very high probability that Ms. Jansen concert will be more fun then evening spent reading about horns and drivers at my site… :-)

The Mozart Fifth Concerto is very good!
fiogf49gjkf0d
It is Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts BBC Proms with European Union Youth Orchestra

It is very good, but… I do not think that this is THE WAY to play Mozart. I would get it as Brahms or Sibelius Concerto but not the Mozart. She is overly idealistic and sentimental for this music; there is nothing wrong in this but it does not works for me in Mozart.

Nordic I think
fiogf49gjkf0d
Well I think she is nordic, so maybe Sibelius is for her, and I agree about all the young performers with the tremendous technique...however she also has a beautiful tone with absolutely no fear in her playing. I find parts of her beethoven violin concerto very exciting, though no she doesn't pull the strings the way oistrakh does, who is my favorite there.I also try to go to as many live concerts as possible for the reasons you said, it puts the audio stuff into perspective.R weissman

The very idiosyncratic manner.
fiogf49gjkf0d

Yes, she is nice, with very good tone but the more important that she looks like does not have that “victorious attitude” that I find so disgusting in the play of contemporary talented players. She also has a very idiosyncratic manner to collapse sound into very sexy almost non-rhythmical poses: very effective but a bit ware thin in a long ran.

Still, during a live concert it might be absolutely anything. Do not forgers hat for the players of that caliber to play concerts is an ordinary routine. It is like you are a teacher in a school - you might give a phenomenally inspiriting lesson one day and other day you might be bored like hell.  Probably if she bring an interning program and play with better then BSO orchestra then I would go.  BTW, if you like Beethoven violin concerto then try another very talented young lady - Viktoria Mullova.  She even recorded it with Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. The all played period instruments and demonstrated very good and balance Beethoven.
