THE TELEGRAPH – PROKOFIEV DISC REVIEW


22nd October 2012

For the apt coupling of the Sonata for Two Violins, Jansen is joined by the Russian-born violinist Boris Brovtsyn for a performance that reveals Prokofiev’s consummate resourcefulness in writing a piece that capitalises on the lyrical and athletic potential of the violins and creates such a variety of contrasts and such a fascinating web of textures. For the First Sonata she is partnered by the pianist Itamar Golan, the two of them of like mind in conveying the music’s dark, ominous undertones, its mellow reflectiveness and its fierce, nervous energy.
