The New York Debut of the Acclaimed Janoska Ensemble
Presented by Borislav Strulev
and Universal Music
The Ensemble will perform a program based on their debut album “Janoska Style,” being released in the U.S. on March 10 by Deutsche Grammophon.
Each of the group’s members is an award-winning virtuoso in his own right; together they form a chamber Dream Team. They don’t hide their individual styles; they let them shine. As the work on their CD attests, they are equally comfortable riffing on Paganini with dueling violins playing the original score and an improvised jazz variation, taking a Johann Strauss waltz and mixing in strains of czardas and Balkan folk tunes or composing an original rumba that harkens back to Mozart.
“The Janoska Ensemble has achieved something very special. The four musicians…have created their own unmistakable sound made up of great virtuosity, a literally inexhaustible wealth of musical ideas and bewitchingly mellow sonorities…A true feast for the ears!”
