Janoska Ensemble (Slovakia)
Ondrej & Roman Janoska (Violin)
František Janoska (Piano)
Julius Darvas (Double Bass)
Outstanding musicians and brothers at the same time Ondrej, Roman and František Janoska together with their brother-in-law Julius Darvas created a unique ensemble that combines classical training with other diverse musical styles in its own way. This distinctive method of interpretation called “Janoska style” is based on the perfect virtuosity of each individual member of the ensemble, supported by numerous awards for solo achievements as well as on the musical tradition of the family and the love of improvisation. This creates original, passionate and exciting music that lives and breathes.
The Janoska Ensemble, which records exclusively by Deutsche Grammophon, is often searched for across the four continents as it was brought to the musical dialogue with big-name stage personalities such as Anna Netrebko, Al Jarreau, Bobby McFerrin, Juan Diego Florez, Brian McKnight, Julian Rachlin, Randy Newman, Bireli Lagrene and Lalo Schifrin. Although the players’ schedules remain overfilled, they are still inventing new programs and projects, as evidenced by a pair of already released CD. The first of them was released in 2016, called “Janoska Style”, which won the Gold Record, as the second was “Revolution” album from last year, which includes four hits by The Beatles arranged in “Janoska style”, both editing works of classical composers and own creation mixing different music styles and taking the classical music to the next level.
“The Janoska Ensemble is an exceptional ensemble with excellent arrangements, a real discovery for me, we’re sure to hear much more of them!”
