Monday Music - Janine Jansen #1

Now look, don't go away even if you think you don't like the violin. No, I said DON'T GO. This young lady is new to me. She's Dutch and she is a superb player. This little piece, 'Meditation from Thais' by Jules Massenet is one I'm trying to learn at the moment. And I sound as much like her as I look like her.

Listen, play it. It's beautiful. Unlike some, she doesn't milk the emotion too much - just enough. Next Monday will be more of Janine - give both pieces a try, why don't you?
