Notes & Reviews:

In recent years violinist Arabella Steinbacher has risen to the top of her league. A young performer with such an exceptional musical mind and nigh-flawless technique is a rarity indeed, and the world has taken note. Her previous projects have garnered attention worldwide as recordings that set a new standard for her chosen repertoire. This project's challenging repertoire is a triumph for Steinbacher, as her sparkling tone stands on display from the first note to the very last.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
There is no doubting Steinbacher's refulgent sound or the flair of her delivery.

MusicWeb International, 12th June 2013
[The Chausson's] hot-house atmosphere again but nicely controlled and for me the highlight of this album...The Bruch is worthy but there are worthy and worthier alternatives...I will keep the CD for the tingling climax of this Chausson.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The first thing that grabbed me is the sound - first rate - with warmth and depth. And her tone is superb, too: balanced and poised but also warm and inviting. As he has in so many recordings, Conductor Foster elicits able, supportive accompaniment from the orchestra. And the PentaTone technical team captures it all in vibrant. Chausson's Poeme is one of the most beautiful works in a repertoire with no shortage of beautiful creations. Almond with the Milwaukee Symphony. A soothingly evocative piece beautifully played here with simple, direct, heart-warming expressiveness. The Bruch concerto (the First, of course) is the concert violinist. And this performance is very pleasing. It certainly does fill out the program nicely.
