Janine Jansen's Wolkenturm performance of Britten's Violin Concerto was a highlight of the 2017 summer season. Now the great Dutch violinist returns with pianist Denis Kozhukhin to perform a romantic sonata programme that opens with Beethoven and moves on to Brahms's atmospheric and charming folk music-inspired final violin sonata.
