With heart and hands – Vivaldi’s Four Seasons live – Janine Jansen and Amsterdam Sinfonietta

Played masterly – Vivaldi comes alive again

I listened with shivers down my spine. Janine does not hold back when she plays. Music requires no thought process. It resonates in us and in the musicians. This we can see when Janine plays. If her audience expects body control and emotionless playing – tough luck. Classical music is felt just like most other music. We sometimes dance to music. Then, our body resonates with the music. Sometimes music is euphoric and must be played euphorically. Sometimes music is quiet and the beauty often lies in what you do not hear.
