“These concertos by Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky are part of the absolute “standard repertoire” usually studied by violinists at a young age. And to be honest, although I love playing these works regularly in my concerts, I had never before felt the need to record them, unlike other, rarely played repertoire that I have recorded in the past.
However, Charles and I have performed the concertos together many times and no matter how often I play them, I realize every time again that it feels new for each successive performance – this is the magic of music.
These are simply such wonderful concertos that I was extremely happy to make this recording with him and the extraordinary Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.”
Arabella Steinbacher

Press reviews

Classic FM

Two of the greatest concertos in the violin repertoire are performed here by one of today’s most exciting violinists. This vigorous recording of the Tchaikovsky and the Mendelssohn concertos shows off violinist Arabella Steinbacher on superb form, solidly supported by conductor Charles Dutoit at the helm of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.

Steinbacher says she waited a long time to find the right collaborators for these concertos and it seems to have been well worth the wait. Her performance is confident, immediate and dazzling; Dutoit’s marshalling of the accompaniment is rhythmic and decisive.

Recorded in September 2014 in the magnificent Victoria Hall, Geneva, it’s all captured in vibrant, pin-sharp sound.”
