Fantastic Fiddle

Violinist Janine Jansen has just released her Mendelssohn/Bruch concerti recording here in the US. It's fantastic to say the least. It also features her playing viola, yes you read that right, VIOLA, on a rarity, Bruch's Romance.
Take a listen to part of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto cadenza with Janine and her lovely Strad: mp3 file

It's also awesome that she is performing these and other works around the world. In this neck of the woods, she'll be in Washington DC in February, Philadelphia in April and NYC in May and September. See the rest of her schedule here. And buy the new recording here (a portion benefits WITF).
