Arabella Steinbacher presents works for violin and orchestra by Johann Sebastian Bach and Arvo Pärt, together with violinist Christoph Koncz, pianist Peter von Wienhardt and the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester. Bach’s violin concertos have had a very special significance for Steinbacher ever since hearing the ‘A Minor Concerto’ at the age of four, an experience that made her decide to become a musician.
This seminal work is performed here alongside the ‘E Major Violin Concerto’ and the ‘Double Concerto in D Minor’, on which she is joined by violinist Christoph Koncz. The Bach concertos are framed by two of Arvo Pärt’s most profound and enigmatic pieces: ‘Fratres’ and ‘Spiegel im Spiegel’; the former in the version for violin, string orchestra and percussion, the latter rendered in a version for violin and piano, together with Peter von Wienhardt. Bach and Pärt may be centuries apart, but for Steinbacher, they have a spiritual and sacred origin in common, and their music resonates deeply with her.
