I'm never going to love the Mendelssohn VC but this is a performance you NEED to see.
From Proms 2005, a fresh faced and young JJ absolutely destroys it, with some of the most fearless playing I've seen. Aggressive, risk taking with an almost feral intensity. Incredible self-belief in her musicality and flawless technique. Every. Single. Note.
