Julian Rachlin in Mail on Sunday's YOU Magazine
20th February 2005
LOVE, WITH STRINGS
Janine Jansen and Julian Rachlin are proof that mixing business and pleasure can work. The virtuoso violinists - he from Lithuania, she from Holland - met and fell in love two-and-a-half years ago, and are now being hailed as classical music's golden couple. 'It's wonderful to perform together,' says Janine, 27. 'We try to go to each other's concerts, too, but it can be more nerve-wracking being in the audience than playing on stage.' They headline around 100 concerts and cover five continents a year between them, so finding time for each other can be tricky. 'We've just moved in together in Vienna, so I hope there'll be less meeting in hotel rooms,' smiles Julian, 30. 'But we wouldn't have it any other way. Music is our life.'
