It has been announced today that Dutch violinist Janine Jansen has been awarded the 2015 Bremen Musikfest Award.

The honour will be presented during his year's Bremen Music Festival, in Germany – which will see the 37 year old virtuoso partake in a world premiere arrangement of Bach's 'Goldberg Variations' for String Trio.

“As a soloist and as a chamber musician, Janine Jansen combines the highest degree of virtuosity, richness of expression and charm,” the festival jury chair has said.

Previous recipients include Jessye Norman, Gidon Kremer, Julia Fischer, Nikolaus Haroncourt, Antoine Tamestit and VC 'Artist' Sergey Khachaturian.
